Whall v Stamp [2019] NSWCA 163 (08 July 2019) (Basten JA at [1]; Leeming JA at [18]; Payne JA at [26])


Catchwords:


CIVIL PROCEDURE – motion to remove a caveat – urgent fixture of motion – caveat based on claim to life interest – separate question ordered as to existence of life interest – answer to question finally determined substantive issue – whether order for separate question appropriate given urgency of motion

CIVIL PROCEDURE – appeal – procedural unfairness – determination of motion to remove caveat did not require final determination of existence of life interest – whether appellant denied opportunity to prove existence of agreement to confer life interest

EVIDENCE – further evidence on appeal – need to show possibility of different outcome – application of Supreme Court Act 1970 (NSW), s 75A to evidence of procedural unfairness
