A secret recording of the meeting was released to the media and a partial transcript was filed in Court. LOLG lawyers obtained emergency interim and permanent Orders preventing disclosure. The Divisional Court upheld the permanent Order protecting the meeting, declined to revisit the costs awarded below, and awarded additional costs for the appeal.
