This case should never have reached court. The Defence of the Realm Act gives the government legal powers to do this, and British courts cannot overrule statue law. They wasted their money, because there was no way they could ever have won.
If their lawyer advised them otherwise, they'd have a claim of malpractice against the lawyer.
