Books of pleadings

When any action set down for trial in the High Court is assigned to a judge for hearing, the party who set the case down for trial is required to lodge with the registrar to that judge on the trial date a certified copy of the Book of Pleadings for transmission to the trial judge.

The book should include a copy of the notice of trial, setting down docket, all pleadings exchanged between the parties, any relevant orders, notices for particulars and replies thereto and be paginated and indexed.

Notice of lodgement or notice of tender or any reference thereto should not be included.
