Ken Livingstone still does not apologise; estimated £250,000 court costs

"Ken Livingstone has won a High Court appeal against a finding that he brought his office into disrepute over comments made to a Jewish journalist.
The mayor was found guilty of being "insensitive and offensive" to Evening Standard reporter Oliver Finegold by the Adjudication Panel for England.

But Mr Justice Collins said the panel had misdirected itself.

The judge said that while the mayor should have apologised he had the right to freedom of speech.

Mr Livingstone, who was facing bankruptcy should he have lost the case, was awarded his full legal costs which were thought to be about £250,000."
