Law report - stays of proceedings

In the matter of an application for information about a trust [2013] SC (Bda) 45 App

Justice Hellman, sitting as a single judge of the Court of Appeal, had refused a stay of an order by the Chief Justice for the applicant to disclose accounting information to the respondents, pending appeal to the Court of Appeal.

The applicant then re-applyied for Justice Hellman to stay the matter only until the full Court of Appeal could consider the matter in a further month's time.

Hellman J held that he did have the authority to do this [13]. He decided that, as the full Court of Appeal would be able to consider the matter in as little as a month, it tipped the balance in staying the order for that short period [20].
