What happens at the Friday motion list?
Between 9.00 am and 9.30 am an assistant registrar sits to take consider consent applications. At 9.30 am the assistant registrar will call through the list noting priority and hearing estimates. Any remaining that are to be dealt with by the assistant registrar on a consent basis will be deferred until the finalisation of the list of matters for hearing. The matters ready for hearing will then be referred to the Judicial Registrar for hearing or for allocation to any judges who may become available during the day. After the referral has been completed the assistant registrar will then deal with any other matters remaining in the list. For more information, see District Court Practice Note Civil 1.
