(b) in a document the respondent submitted to the Court by email on 25 February 2008, and copied to the applicant’s solicitor, with the file name “Address for 28 February 2008.doc”, a hard copy of which has been initialled by me and placed with the Court file,
the respondent admits that he has breached the undertaking he gave to the Court and the applicant on 27 November 2007 by not deleting some of the material that that undertaking required and requires him to delete and makes statements impugning the integrity of the Court and the judicial process.
1. Dismiss the respondent’s amended application by notice dated 19 February 2008.
2. ORDER pursuant to 40 r 10 that the Registrar apply by motion for punishment of the respondent’s contempt by breach of his undertaking to the Court and by making statements that impugn the integrity of the Court and the judicial process. [Although the applicant submits this order is appropriate, it is entirely a matter for the court as a ministerial decision taken of its own motion.]
3. Order that the respondent pay the applicant’s costs up to and including 27 November 2007 on an indemnity basis and that the applicant may proceed to recover his costs under this order forthwith.
