Leave to appeal was sought against a judge’s finding that he had no jurisdiction to hear an application for leave to appeal against another order itself refusing leave to appeal against a case management decision. The party had declined to make any application to the original judge. They said that were following a path they had previously taken.
Held: A previous incorrect procedure could not be repeated. The Act explicitly required the application to be heard by the original judge, and the exceptions did not apply here. In future such an application should be rejected summarily by the court.
