Abuse of process June 6, 2017

  1. CGU Insurance Ltd v Watson [2007] NSWCA 301 at [40]:

The Supreme Court has an inherent jurisdiction to prevent abuse of its procedures, and may stay or dismiss proceedings the bringing or continuance of which is an abuse of process. Even if principles of res judicata or Anshun estoppel do not apply, there may be abuse of process in relitigating an issue decided against a party in previous proceedings.
