Law report - security for costs

Galloway v Roth [2013] SC (Bda) 81

The plaintiff lived outside of Bermuda and so the defendant was seeking security for costs in the event that the plaintiff lost the case. The plaintiff was of very limited means such that it would be very difficult for her to pay security for costs of any substantial amount.

Considering the right of both parties to be given a fair hearing, Justice Hellman awarded security of just $1,000
