lawyers the opportunity to  claim costs of the case, limiting the claim to only two lawyers per team.

The High Court judge, despite  voicing that he was convinced the Domkgrag and Government had a weak case, did not proceed to award punitive costs  against the Domkgrag and Government though, instead he awarded the costs on ordinary scale.
