Flower & Hart for the respondents

THE PRESIDENT:  Well, I have considered whether this application for an extension of time in CA 1388 of 2006 should be struck out for want of prosecution.

It has not been progressed in any way by the applicant since its filing on the 20th of February 2006.  It does, however, seem to be linked closely with another matter which is to proceed in the Court of Appeal later this year in CA 3622 of 2007.  For the time being I am persuaded that the interests of justice are best served by dealing with both these applications together.  They will be heard by the Court later this year.

But the applicant, Mr Di Carlo, is certainly on notice that if he does not follow carefully the directions given for the progression of this matter and also for the associated matter in CA 3622 of 2007, the matters will be listed for further directions and he will be at risk of having cost orders made against him, or even having either or both matters struck out for want of prosecution.

I order that CA 1388 of 2006 is to be heard together with CA 3622 of 2007, and that the parties are to follow the directions for the progression of both these matters given by the Deputy Registrar Appeals, or his nominee.

...

THE PRESIDENT:  I have considered carefully the matter of whether a costs order should be made in this case.  I am satisfied on the material that the necessity for today's mention is entirely the fault of Mr Di Carlo's failure to progress the hearing of this matter in any way.  It is entirely appropriate in those circumstances that he pays the respondent's costs of and incidental to today's hearing, and that is my order.  I direct that a transcript of today's hearing be made.
