costs to be paid by the other side / costs against the other side (claimant / defendant)


Explanation:
Es normal en la ley inglesa que el juez haga una decisión sobre quién paga los gastos de quién. La regla general (aunque hay excepciones y todo depende del juez) es que el que pierde paga los gastos legales del otro.

Se suele decir costs for/against the claimant/defendant
