High Court: (a) refuses an application to adjourn proceedings to allow the parties to undergo mediation where an interlocutory application is outstanding; and (b) gives directions for the advancement of proceedings.

Application seeking proceedings be adjourned for mediation – Plaintiff’s injunction application – defendant first suggested mediation in Court – plaintiffs refused offer of mediation – characterised it as a ‘stunt’ – two without prejudice settlement negotiations – interlocutory injunction application remains live - application refused – best course is now to give directions in order to advance the proceedings.
