2        By letter lodged at the Registry of the General Court on 17 March 2011, the defendant informed the Court that it had no observations to make concerning the discontinuance of the proceedings and requested that the applicant be ordered to bear the costs.

In the present case the defendant has applied for the applicant to bear the costs.

4        The case should therefore be removed from the register and the applicant ordered to bear its own costs and those of the defendant.

On those grounds,

THE PRESIDENT OF THE FIRST CHAMBER OF THE GENERAL COURT
