What are the implications of the Court of Appeal's decision not to award costs from interlocutory proceedings?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Mayer v. Osborne Contracting Ltd., 2011 BCSC 914 (CanLII):

Costs awards from interlocutory proceedings are not usually payable forthwith for two reasons: (a) to avoid adverse financial repercussions to the unsuccessful litigant that would prevent it from proceeding with the litigation; and (b) to avoid limiting the range of options available to the trial judge to deal with costs at the conclusion of the litigation: Lalji v. Sunderji, [1997] B.C.J. No 239 (S.C.).
