Case summary
The court held that a single justice could only exercise the powers of the full bench of the Court of appeal in an interlocutory cause or matter before the court that is, there had to be a pending matter before the full bench. The court was not satisfied that there was a matter pending before it since the appeal from which the application arose had already been concluded by the court. The court accordingly concluded that a single justice of appeal lacked jurisdiction to entertain the application and struck it out.
