Court of Appeal - Civil - Note for Parties in Court Of Appeal Proceedings regarding the lodging of Books of Appeal
Parties are required to lodge complete books of appeal (in both hard and soft copy) not later than 4 weeks prior to the date of the appeal in accordance with Practice Direction CA06, or such other date as shall be fixed by the court. This must include the transcript of the DAR or approved note of the judgment of the High Court where appropriate and a joint book of authorities. A party who has been authorised to lodge the books of appeal may lodge the books in accordance with this direction notwithstanding the failure of another party to the appeal to furnish its written submissions to such party for inclusion in the books of appeal.
In the event that the books are not lodged within the time fixed, the appeal shall be relisted in the next directions list in the Court of Appeal for mention. If the books are not lodged by the latter date, the Court may make an order extending the time for the late filing of the books of appeal for such short period as it deems appropriate subject to an order that the appeal shall stand struck out for failure to comply with the directions of the court. In the event of a failure to comply with such order the appeal shall be struck out. Where an appeal is listed in the directions list by reason of the foregoing, the party in default may be liable for the costs arising from attendance at the directions list.
