  • Summary Judgement applications

    Are they usually in person or can they also be via Zoom?

    What is the norm?

    Either is possible. I would guess that now, post-pandemic restrictions, in person is more likely.

      But what is the norm? Is a summary judgement application deemed serious enough to warrant in=person appearances, as norm?

        Summary judgments are applied in the same way any other hearing is determined so it can either be in-person or remote such as Zoom or Microsoft Teams. The court has discretion on whether to order a remote hearing or whether it should be held in-person. If you have been told a hearing is to be held remotely then you can challenge it by way of application and pay a fee but you will need a very good reason, like your internet connection is dodgy or so slow it wouldn't be able to hold the connection. Simply saying that you want in-person isn't good enough.

          There is no point in asking what is the norm. Practice varies between court centres. How will it help you if I say one thing and in your case the court directs the other?
