"Further upon Mr Edwards indicating that he will not issue any further proceedings against the defendant and the County Court, nor any further applications in this court, the court declines to make either a limited civil restraint order or an extended civil restraint order but reserves the right to consider that course of action in the event that further proceedings are begun by the claimant against the defendant or further applications are made in this case. In that event, the defendant and Mr Paradise-Hirst has the right to make an application in writing to His Honour Judge Mitchell that some form of civil restraint order be imposed upon the claimant."
"Upon hearing on a pre-trial review the claimant and defendant, both being in person, [the defendant being Mr Paradise-Hirst]
It is ordered that;
(1) The trial set down for 1 March 2010 be vacated.
(2) The pre-trial review be adjourned to a date to be fixed.
(3) There be no order as to costs."
That order makes no reference to the restraint orders to which I have referred. On the face of it, it is a routine order simply granting an adjournment and contemplating a pre-trial review on a date to be fixed. On the face of it, there is difficulty in reconciling that order with the earlier orders which have been brought to the attention of the court.
