The claimant wanted to appeal an order to pay the defendants’ costs already ordered, and to provide security for costs of the remaining action. The defendants requested security for the costs of the appeal. Throughout the matter the claimant had been inconsistent about his residence and connections with the UK. The claimant had been late paying the funds.
Held: The rules required strong grounds before interfering with an order allowing leave for an appeal once granted. The stay arising from the failure to comply with the judge’s order did not prevent the appeal. Defendants’ appeal refused.
