Ministry of Justice – High Court – Mr Cameron Slater submits he is no longer a party to defamation proceedings brought against him because he has been made bankrupt.
The Court makes explicit that a term and condition of its order the proceeding may continue against him is that he must comply with the orders made against him to provide further discovery and attend court to be orally examined. If he wishes to oppose the plaintiffs’ application that he comply with the orders or be held in contempt, he must file a notice of opposition and supporting affidavit.
