EAT Appellate jurisdiction/reasons/Burns-Barke
Bias, misconduct and procedural irregularity
Rule 37 gives a general discretion to extend time for the doing of any act in the EAT, whether the deadline has passed or not. In deciding whether to grant relief against an unless order, or when a party is in breach of an order, practice direction or rule, in particular when the time limit for complying has expired, the EAT will apply principles analogous to those applied in the High Court, by reference to the guidance in CPR 3.9 for relief from sanctions. This is envisaged by PD1.8 which permits resort to the CPR if appropriate to the unique constitution of the EAT.
