Practice Note No. 61

REPEALED - Notifying Court of Compromise, Etc


Date:
04/23/1990


    PRACTICE NOTE NO 61

    NOTIFYING COURT OF COMPROMISE, ETC


    The Supreme Court Rules 1970 have been amended by
    adding Part 33 rule 8B as follows -
        8B The parties to proceedings commenced in the Court shall, where it is a fact that -
    (a) there is an agreement for compromise or settlement of the proceedings;
    (b) the proceedings are discontinued; or
    (c) an appearance or defence is withdrawn, forthwith notify the Registrar of the fact.

    The observance of the rule is required so that only "live" cases are listed for call-overs, conferences and hearings.

    It is the duty of counsel and solicitors to observe the requirements of the rule. They will usually be ordered to pay personally any costs thrown away by default in observance of the rule.


    A M GLEESON
    Chief Justice
