Better late than never…
Following a great deal of uncertainty, the 79th update to the CPR has now been issued. The update confirms that District Judges sitting in the County Court have jurisdiction to hear applications for injunctions made under Part 1 ASBCPA 2014 injunctions.
It also confirms that they can hear committal applications relating to such injunctions.
The update has made amendments to Section III of Practice Direction 2B. It took effect from 6 April 2015. The relevant paragraphs are:
1. 8.1(iv) which confirms District Judges can hear applications for injunctions made under Part 1, and
2. 8.3 which confirms that District Judges can hear committal applications relating to Part 1 injunctions.

As always I will endeavour to keep you updated with developments.
