IN THE DUBAI INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL CENTRE COURTS
PRACTICE DIRECTION NO. 4 OF 2013
Permission to Appeal
This Practice Direction will come into effect on the date of signature. It may be cited as Practice Direction 4 of 2013 — Permission to Appeal — and may be abbreviated to PD 4/2013.
In instances in which a party seeks the appeal court’s permission to appeal against a decision of the Court of First Instance in an appeal notice (Rule 44.7(2) of the Rules of the DIFC Courts (RDC)), the application for permission to appeal may not be put before the judge against whose decision permission to appeal is being sought.
The above restriction applies in the context of applications to the appeal Court for permission to appeal without a hearing (see RDC 44.12), as well as applications in which the appeal Court, without a hearing, has refused permission to appeal, and the party seeking permission requests the decision to be reconsidered at a hearing (see RDC 44.15).
This Practice Direction in no way amends or limits the provisions contained in Part 44 of the Rules of the DIFC Courts.
Dated this 29th day of May 2013
