- Appeals — Judicial remedies
This chapter discusses the legal principles applicable to appeals from the High Court to the Court of Appeal and appeals from the Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) to the Court of Appeal, as well as the extent to which fresh evidence may be adduced in the Court of Appeal. It first considers the general rules about appeals from the High Court to the Court of Appeal, along with the statutory basis of the Court of Appeal’s power to hear appeals from the High Court. Other issues such as appellant’s notice, respondent’s statement of objection, appeals against case management decisions, and grounds for appeal are also examined. The chapter proceeds by analysing the procedure and grounds for appeal from the CAT to the Court of Appeal, before concluding with an assessment of the conditions that must be met to justify the reception of fresh evidence or a new trial in the Court of Appeal.
