SCT Costs


This Registrar’s Direction will come into effect on the date of signature. It may be cited as Registrar Direction 1 of 2009 – SCT Costs and may be abbreviated to RD 1/2009

SCT Costs

Rules 44.644.29 of the Rules of the DIFC Courts provide for appeals from SCT Judgments to the Court of First Instance of the DIFC Courts, but only with permission from a Judge.

This is to inform Court users that the Chief Justice has reminded all DIFC Courts’ Judges that permission to appeal an SCT Judgment may be made subject to conditions, when the Judge granting permission considers it appropriate to do so, and that these might include conditions as to the costs of the appeal. For example, permission might be made conditional upon the appellant agreeing not to seek a costs Order of any sort against the respondent, if the appeal succeeds, or even to bear both parties’ costs of the appeal in any event. Whether any condition should be imposed, and in what terms, is a matter for the Judge in the circumstances of the particular case.

Dated this 16th day of August 2009

Mark Beer
Registrar of the DIFC Courts
