Alternative methods of filing suit
Topic: Alternative methods of filing suit
Posted: 20/July/2012 at 16:27
I have a question that relates to initiating a proceeding in court. From my understanding and research I am unable to determine if filing an originating process or preliminary proceeding can ONLY be done through the Registry. The Registry itself (for some strange reason) are very limited in their knowledge of procedural rules unless the case to be initiated is basic in nature. For example we have repeatedly asked our Registrar of our District and Supreme court, both in writing and in person how to initiate a claim in equity and the guy behind the desk to the Registry (the very place you are supposed to file your case!!!!) doesn't even know what equity means..this astonishes me and concerns me a great deal...I want to know if there are other ways to initiate a claim? For example, are there any grounds upon which someone could approach a Judge, Justice, or Chief Judge or Justice, either in writing or via the Registry but in a sealed envelope because the particulars of the claim are proprietary and initiate a claim or apply for an exemption to the normal procedures? Is it possible to initiate a claim or preliminary issue by writing to a chief justice?
