New Practice Rule – Cape Town Regional Court

Aug 5, 2014 | 2012 - 2014, News

Last month the Cape Town Regional Court introduced a practice rule that all applications for default judgment take place in open court and that a representative of the applicant be present. Previously a default judgment was decided by a Magistrate on the papers, which would be sent back to the applicant with queries. The new procedure will simplify and expedite this process by allowing a Magistrate to raise and deal with any queries immediately.
