Chancery 1 List motions are to resume from Monday 22nd June 2020. The High Court have announced the new arrangements for the adjourned Chancery 1 list motions from Monday 23rd March onwards. Practitioners are asked to identify whether their Motions can be either dealt with by Consent Order/Adjournments or if they are contested and require a hearing date. The dates for hearings for this list will start from the 22nd June and subsequent Mondays until the List is complete.
Ms Justice Reynolds has also directed that that any motions adjourned due to COVID-19 arrangements can be dealt with by way of a consent order without the necessity to attend court. These would be for motions that were listed in the Chancery 1 List on Monday 23rd March – Monday 11th May and Monday 18th May – Monday 27th July 2020 and have previously been adjourned generally with liberty to re-enter.
Chancery List 1 – Consent Orders
For consent orders practitioners may email the Registrar with documentation of the Consent of all parties to the litigation and a Court Order will be prepared by the Registrar to be placed on the Court file. All consent applications must be made to the Registrar before the 22nd June.
Chancery List 1 – Contested Motions
Ms Justice Reynolds has now directed that any such Contested Motions that still require a hearing date in the Chancery 1 List from the adjourned Motions list (Monday 23rd March 2020 and each Monday thereafter to date) will now be listed for hearing on Monday, 22nd June or subsequent Mondays thereafter until that List is exhausted.
