I have a 3 year Initiating Application set down for hearing in March 2016. On the last mention in November 2015, I had requested to inspect the Court File. After three years, it is approximately 22 inches thick. I was allowed to inspect the file for 10 minutes before the matter was heard. The file is kept in Darwin. There are numerous subpoena affidavits. etc. attached to the file. My understanding from the Judge is that I can inspect the file. The registry has advised that I can inspect the file, but with the file being 1500kms away, I will not be able to do so until the day of the final hearing in March. In other words, I cannot include any material in the file, or rely on any evidence in the Court File. My options are to: - Fly to Darwin (Flights hotels) and Copy the file at 20c per sheet. - Ask an "agent" to attend the court registry and Copy the file, - Wait to read the entire file on the day of the Final Hearing. Does anyone have any suggestions how I can read the 3 years worth of material before filing my Affidavit in Chief?
