ORDER

 

APPELLANT conducted his own case

MR M BURNS for the respondent

 

THE PRESIDENT:  Mr Connolly has asked that this matter be adjourned to enable him to obtain a lawyer to appear on his  behalf.  It has been explained to him that an adjournment on the day the matter has been listed for hearing will mean that he will have to pay the costs thrown away by the adjournment and he has indicated that he nevertheless wishes to continue with his application for an adjournment.

 

In the circumstances Mr Connolly should then be given the opportunity to have the assistance of a lawyer in this matter but must understand that when the matter is next listed for hearing, the matter will be expected to proceed whether or not Mr Connolly is then legally represented.  The matter will be adjourned to a date to be fixed.

...

 

THE PRESIDENT:  The appellant is to pay the respondent's costs of today's hearing and the costs thrown away by the adjournment.
