2. Are there any examples of interlocutory proceedings that might be regarded by the Court as abuse of process? What are the consequences of initiating such proceedings?
Depending on the facts of the case, one quick example of abuse of court process may be that a litigant repeatedly took out wholly unmeritorious interlocutory application(s) for the purpose of delaying the court proceedings.
Apparently, abuse of court process is unwelcomed by the Court, and the Court may order the litigant who took out such kind of applications to pay costs of his opponent on an indemnity basis to show the Court’s disapproval of such conduct.
