Between:

SERENE CONSTRUCTION LTD

-v-

(1) SALATA & ASSOCIATES LIMITED

Before the Honourable Mr Justice Marcus Smith, sitting as the Business and Property Courts Supervising Judge responsible for the Midland Circuit, on 18 March 2020
UPON a hearing of the Intended Appellants’ application for permission to appeal having been listed for an oral renewal of that application on 20 March 2020 at the Birmingham Civil Justice Centre
AND UPON the Judge taking notice of the COVID 19 (Coronavirus) pandemic and the measures being taken in response
AND UPON the informal application by the Intended Appellant to adjourn the hearing unless it can be heard in person by the court
IT IS ORDERED THAT
1. The hearing take place remotely either by conference telephone call or video-conferencing.

2. If and to the extent that such hearing cannot take place in public, then the hearing is to take place in private pursuant to CPR 39.2(3)(g).

REASONS

( 1) I have considered the paper in this matter and can see no reason why the application cannot fairly be disposed of by way of a remote hearing.
(2) A remote hearing is, in this case, necessary for a hearing to take place at all; and it is in the interests of justice that the matter be disposed of on the date listed, rather than be adjourned.
