Law report - security for costs

Galloway v Roth [2013] SC (Bda) 81 Civ

The overseas Petitioner was of very limited means and the Respondent sought security of at least $7,000.

It was held by Hellman J that, having regard to the Consitutional right to a fair hearing, the court must have regard to the amount of security a party might be able to raise.

In the event, $1,000 security was ordered.
