ORDER 6. PARTIES.

Joinder of Plaintiffs.

1. All persons may be joined in one action as plaintiffs in whom any right to relief in respect of or arising out of the same transactions, or series of transactions, is alleged to exist, whether jointly, severally, or in the alternative, where, if such persons brought separate actions, any common question of law or fact would arise ; provided that if, upon a motion on notice by any defendant, it shall appear that such joinder may embarrass or delay the trial, the Judge may order separate trials, or make such other order as may be right, and provided also that no person shall be made a plaintiff without his consent.

Joinder of Defendants

2. All persons may be joined as defendants against whom the right to any relief is alleged to exist, whether jointly, severally, or in the alternative.

When the plaintiff is in doubt as to the person from whom he is entitled to redress, he may join two or more defendants, to the intent that the question as to which, if any, of the defendants is liable, and to what extent, may be determined as between all parties.

It shall not be necessary that every defendant shall be interested as to all the relief sought, or as to every cause of action included in any proceeding against him ; but the Judge may make such order as may appear just, to prevent any defendant from being embarrassed, or put to expense, by being required to attend any proceedings in which he has no interest.

Joint and several liability.

3. The plaintiff may, at his option, join as defendants to the same action all or any of the persons severally, or jointly and severally, liable on any one contract, including parties to bills of exchange and promissory notes.

Misjoinder and Non-joinder.

4. No cause or matter shall be defeated by reason of the misjoinder or non-joinder of parties, and the Judge may in every cause or matter deal with the subject in controversy so far as regards the rights and interests of the parties actually before him. The Judge may, at any stage of the proceedings, either upon or without the application of any party, and on such terms as may appear to him to be just, order that the name of any party, whether plaintiff or defendant, who has been improperly joined, be struck out, and that the name of any person who ought to have been joined as a party, or whose presence before the Court may be necessary in order to enable the Judge to adjudicate upon and settle all the questions involved in the cause or matter, be added as a plaintiff or defendant. No person shall be added as a plaintiff suing without a next friend, or as the next friend of a plaintiff under any disability, without his consent in writing thereto. Every person whose name is so added as defendant shall be served with a Civil Bill or Notice in such manner as may be prescribed by any Order of the Court, and the proceeding, as against such party, shall be deemed to have begun only on the service of such Civil Bill or Notice.

Infant Plaintiff.

5. An infant may sue by his next friend, and in such case there shall be lodged with the Civil Bill a written authority authorising the commencement and prosecution of the suit on behalf of the infant and the use of the name of such person as next friend, signed by such person.

Infant Defendant.

6. An infant may defend by his guardian ad litem appointed for that purpose in accordance with Order 16 of these Rules.

Appointment by Court of next friend or guardian ad litem

7. When proceedings have been brought on behalf of or against an infant, the Court may appoint a next friend or guardian ad litem to act for or on behalf of such infant, and may change any next friend or guardian ad litem,and appoint another in his place, and may also direct that any money or other personal property to which such infant may be declared entitled in such proceedings be secured or invested for the benefit of such infant in such manner as the Judge shall consider advisable.

Persons of unsound mind.

8. A lunatic or person of unsound mind not so found by inquisition may sue by his committee or next friend, and may defend by the committee or by the guardian ad litem appointed for that purpose in accordance with Order 16 of these Rules, or by the Court.

Trustees and Executors.

9. Trustees, executors and administrators may sue and be sued on behalf of, or as representing the property or estate of which they are trustees or representatives, without joining any of the persons beneficially interested in the trust or estate, and shall be considered as representing such persons ; but the Judge may, at any stage of the proceedings, order any of such persons to be made parties either in addition to or in lieu of the previously existing parties. This rule shall apply to trustees, executors and administrators sued in proceedings to enforce a security by sale or otherwise.

Representative Plaintiffs or Defendants.

10. Save in actions founded on tort, when there are numerous persons having the same interest in one action or matter, one or more of such persons may sue or be sued, or may be authorised by the Judge to defend, in such action or matter, on behalf of or for the benefit of all persons so interested.

Defendant in proceedings for recovery of land.

11. Where proceedings are taken for the recovery of land, any tenant, under-tenant, or other person in actual possession of the property sought to be recovered, or any part thereof, may be named as defendant and the Civil Bill shall be directed to such tenant, under-tenant, or other person, with the addition of the words " and all persons concerned ".

Appearance by person not named or served.

12. Where proceedings are taken as mentioned in the last preceding rule, any person not named in or served with the Civil Bill may by leave of the Judge appear and defend at the hearing, and the Judge may thereafter deal with such person, both as to costs and otherwise, as if he had originally been served with the Civil Bill as defendant.

Defendant outside the Circuit.

13. When any person residing outside the Circuit, but inside Ireland, is a necessary and proper party to a proceeding properly instituted in the Court against some person within the Circuit, such first mentioned person may be served with the Civil Bill or other document without special leave.

Notice Parties.

14. Subject to the requirements of Rule 9 of Section 66 of the Chancery (Ireland) Act, 1867, wherever, in any action for the administration of the estate of a deceased person, or for the execution of the trusts of any deed or instrument, or for the partition or sale of any hereditaments, a judgment or order has been pronounced affecting the rights or interests of persons not parties to the action, the Court may direct that any persons interested in the estate, or under the trusts, or in the hereditaments, shall be served with notice of the judgment or order ; and after such notice such persons shall be bound by the proceedings, in the same manner as if they had originally been made parties, and shall be at liberty to attend the proceedings under the judgment or order. Any person so served may within one month after such service apply to the Court to discharge, vary or add to the said judgment or order.

ORDER 7. ACTIONS BY AND AGAINST FIRMS AND PERSONS CARRYING ON BUSINESS IN NAMES OTHER THAN THEIR OWN.

Partners.

1. Any two or more persons claiming or being liable as co-partners and carrying on business within the jurisdiction may sue or be sued in the name of the respective firms, if any, of which such persons were co-partners at the time of the accruing of the cause of action ; and any party to an action may in such cases apply by notice of motion to the Court for a statement of the names, descriptions and places of residence of the persons who were, at the time of the accruing of the cause of action, co-partners in any such firm, to be furnished in such manner, and verified on oath or otherwise, as the Court may direct.

Disclosure of names of Plaintiff Partners.

2. When a Civil Bill is issued by partners in the name of their firm, the plaintiffs or their solicitors shall, on demand in writing by or on behalf of any defendant, forthwith declare in writing the names, descriptions and places of residence of all the persons constituting the firm on whose behalf the action is brought. If the plaintiffs or their solicitors shall fail to comply with such demand, all proceedings in the action may, upon an application for that purpose, be stayed upon such terms as the Judge may direct. When the names of the partners are so declared, the action shall proceed in the same manner, and the same consequences in all respects shall follow, as if they had been named as plaintiffs in the Civil Bill, but all proceedings shall, nevertheless, continue in the name of the firm.

Service on Firm.

3. Where persons are sued as partners in the name of their firm under Rule 1 of this Order, the Civil Bill shall be served either upon any one or more of the partners personally or at the principal place, within the jurisdiction, of the business of the partnership, upon any person having at the time of service the control or management of the partnership business there ; and, subject to these rules, such service shall be deemed good service on the firm so sued, whether any of the members thereof are out of the jurisdiction or not, and no leave to issue a Civil Bill against them shall be necessary ; provided that in the case of a partnership which has been dissolved to the knowledge of the plaintiff before the commencement of the action, the Civil Bill shall be served upon every person within the jurisdiction sought to be made liable.

Partners to appear individually

4. Where persons are sued as partners in the name of their firm, they shall appear individually in their own names ; but all subsequent proceedings shall, nevertheless, continue in the name of the firm.

Garnishee Order against Firm.

5. Debts owing by a firm carrying on business within the jurisdiction may be attached under Order 37, although one or more members of such firm may be resident abroad, provided that any person having the control or management of the partnership business, or any member of the firm within the jurisdiction, is served with the garnishee order. An appearance by any member pursuant to an order shall be a sufficient appearance by the firm.

Actions between Firm and a Member.

6. The above Rules shall apply to actions between a firm and one or more of its members, and to actions between firms having one or more members in common, provided such firm or firms carry on business within the jurisdiction, but no execution shall be issued in such actions without leave of the Judge after motion on notice to the party so to be affected, and on an application for leave to issue such execution, all such accounts and inquiries may be directed to be taken and made and directions given as may be just.

Suing defendant by trade name.

7. Any person carrying on business within the jurisdiction in a name or style other than his own name, may be sued in such name or style as if it were a firm name ; and, so far as the nature of the case will permit, all Rules relating to proceedings against firms shall apply.

ORDER 8. JOINDER OF CLAIMS.

Claims not inconsistent may be joined.

1. Save as in the next succeeding Rule provided, two or more claims may be made in one originating document, either alternatively or otherwise, so long as the claims are not mutually inconsistent or based upon inconsistent allegations of fact, but, if it appears to the Judge that claims joined in any action or matter cannot be conveniently tried together, he may order separate trials or may exclude any claim, and may order the record to be amended accordingly, and may make such order as to costs as may be just.

Joinder in action for recovery of land.

2. No claim may be joined with one for the recovery of land except in respect of mesne profits or arrears of rent, or double rent in connection therewith, or any part thereof, and damages for breach of any contract under which the land, or any part thereof, is held, or for any wrong or injury to the said land or any part thereof. An action for redemption, and a motion for delivery by a defendant of possession of mortgaged property therein, shall not be deemed a claim for the recovery of land within the meaning of this Rule.

ORDER 9. INDORSEMENT OF CLAIM.

Particulars in proceedings founded on bills or notes.

1. In proceedings on bills of exchange, promissory notes or other securities for money, the Civil Bill shall set forth the dates of the same respectively, the sums for which the same were respectively given, and the sums claimed to be due thereon for principal and interest, and the rate of such interest, the parties to the same respectively, and the dates when the same respectively became due and payable.

Particulars in rent cases.

2. In all proceedings for rent and for use and occupation of land, the Civil Bill shall state the amount claimed for rent or use and occupation and the period up to which the same is alleged to be due, the name of and the place in the town or townland and the county in which the land or tenements or part thereof are situate, and, when brought upon a lease or other instrument, the date thereof and the parties thereto.

Proceedings founded on other documents.

3. In all proceedings founded upon any written document not included in the two last preceding Rules, the Civil Bill shall state the date of the document and the parties thereto and, if for the payment of money, the amount claimed, or, if for the breach of any contract, the alleged breach or breaches of such contract.

Abandonment of excess over jurisdiction.

4. If a plaintiff, where the amount alleged to be due to him exceeds the jurisdiction of the Court, shall be satisfied to recover such sum as is within the jurisdiction, he shall state upon the face of the Civil Bill that he abandons all claim to any larger amount, and thereupon the Court may deal with the claim, and the decree (if any) made shall be in full satisfaction of the whole of the original demand.

ORDER 10. SERVICE AND ENTRY.

Issue of Civil Bill.

1. A Civil Bill shall be deemed to be issued when it is handed or posted to a Summons Server, or other authorised person, for service on a defendant or defendants, or on his or their Solicitor, who has undertaken in writing to accept service thereof and enter an appearance thereto, or when the appropriate Court Order referred to in Rules 9 and 17 of this Order is made.

Civil Bill to be stamped.

Save as provided by Rules 9 and 17 of this Order, a copy of the Civil Bill or other originating document shall be served by one of the Officers duly appointed as Summons Servers by the County Registrar. A Summons Server or other authorised person shall not accept for service any document purporting to be a copy of a Civil Bill unless the original of such Civil Bill, duly stamped as prescribed by the last preceding Rule, be at the same time handed to him to be shown at the time of service to the defendant or other person to be served. The fee payable to such Summons Server or other authorised person shall be the sum of 5/- in respect of each separate service effected, but, where the Civil Bill is served upon two or more defendants residing in the same household, only one service fee shall be payable.

Service to be personal or at the defendant's residence.

4. Save where otherwise directed or permitted, service of a Civil Bill or other originating document shall be effected upon the defendant personally wherever he is to be found within the jurisdiction, or at the defendant's residence within the jurisdiction personally upon the husband or wife of the defendant, or upon some relative or employee of the defendant over the age of sixteen years and apparently resident there. At the time of service the original Civil Bill duly stamped shall be shown to the person served.

Summons Server to compare copies and indorse service on original.

5. Every Summons server, or other person duly authorised to effect service, shall compare the copies of the Civil Bills or other documents delivered to him for service with their respective originals and, prior to the service of such copies, shall indorse his name upon the same ; and, after he has effected service, shall within three days indorse his name upon each original, stating also the day of the week and date upon which, and the manner in which, and the place where such service was made, and the person, whether husband or wife or relative or employee, upon whom the same was served.

Authentication of service before Entry.

Save as provided in the following Rule, no Civil Bill or other document shall be entered or accepted in the Office unless the service of same shall be authenticated by affidavit or statutory declaration by the person serving same. Such affidavit or statutory declaration may be indorsed on the original document.

Averment of service on knowledge and belief.

7. Where personal service is prescribed and is alleged to have been effected, but the person who has made such service does not know of his own knowledge that the person served is the person named for personal service, he may make the affidavit or statutory declaration referred to in the preceding Rule, stating therein that same is true to the best of his knowledge and belief, but, in any such case, the Judge may on his own initiative or on the application of any person who is alleged to be affected by the said service require such further evidence thereof as he may think right.

Acceptance of service by Solicitor.

8. A Solicitor may undertake in writing to accept service of a Civil Bill and in such case service on such Solicitor shall be sufficient, provided that he shall at the time of service indorse on the original Civil Bill his acceptance of service thereof and his undertaking to enter an appearance thereto.

Substitution of service.

9. If it be made to appear to the Judge that the plaintiff is from any cause unable to effect prompt personal service, or such other service as is prescribed by these Rules, the Judge may make such order for substituted service, or for the substitution for service of notice by advertisement, or otherwise as may be just, and (save where service is allowed by advertisement), whenever any such order shall be made, a copy thereof shall be served along with the Civil Bill or other document, or such notice, and every such order shall state the time within which the defendant may enter an appearance or comply with the requirements of such order.

Application to substitute service.

10. Every application to the Court for an order for substituted or other service, or for the substitution of notice for service, shall be supported by an affidavit setting forth the grounds upon which the application is made.

Service deemed good.

11. In any case, the Judge may declare the service actually effected sufficient.

Service on infant defendant.

12. When an infant is a defendant to an action, service on his father or guardian, or, if none, then upon the person with whom the infant resides or under whose care he is, shall, unless the Judge otherwise orders, be deemed good service on the infant ; provided that the Judge may order that service made or to be made on the infant shall be deemed good service.

Service on lunatic or person of unsound mind.

13. When a lunatic or person of unsound mind not so found by inquisition is a defendant to an action, service on the Committee of the lunatic, or upon the person with whom the person of unsound mind resides, or under whose care he is, shall, unless the Judge orders otherwise, be deemed good service on the defendant.

Return of document after service.

14. A Summons Server, or other person duly authorised to effect service, shall, within four days after service, return the original document properly indorsed as prescribed by these Rules to the Solicitor or other person from whom the same was received.

Entry of Civil Bill.

15. The originals of all Civil Bills or other originating documents intended for entry or to be proceeded on shall be lodged at the Office within eight days after service, or of acceptance in writing of service by a Solicitor, with a request for entry, duly stamped where necessary.

Late Entry.

16. No Civil Bill or other originating document shall, without special leave granted by the Judge or by the County Registrar, be accepted at the Office for entry after the time specified in the last preceding Rule.

Service by person other than Summons Server.

17. In special circumstances and for good cause shown the Judge may permit service of any Civil Bill or other originating document to be effected by a person other than a Summons Server.

Dismissal of Civil Bill not entered.

18. When a Civil Bill or other originating document has not been entered within the time limited by these Rules, the defendant may, after the expiration of that time, apply to the Court by notice of motion to dismiss the proceeding with costs for want of prosecution, and on the hearing of such application the Judge may order the copy of the Civil Bill or other originating document served on the defendant to be entered on payment of the appropriate entry fee, and may order the proceeding to be dismissed accordingly, or may make such other order on such terms as to costs or otherwise as he shall think just.

Documents to which this Order refers.

19. In all cases where proceedings are commenced otherwise than by Civil Bill, the preceding Rules of this Order shall apply to the document by which such proceedings were originated as if it were a Civil Bill.

Service of documents for which no mode of service prescribed.

20. Any document, as to which no mode of service is prescribed by these Rules, may be served by delivering the same to the party or person on whom it is to be served personally, or by delivering the same at the residence or place of business of such person, or by sending the same by pre-paid post, addressed to such party or person at his last known residence or place of business.

Service on Solicitor.

21. Where a party or person acts by Solicitor, any document required to be delivered to or served upon such party may be delivered to or served upon such Solicitor, except in cases where by these Rules personal service upon a party is required ; and service of any such document upon such Solicitor, or delivery of the same at his office, or sending the same to him by prepaid post to such office shall be deemed to be good service upon the party or person for whom such Solicitor acts as upon the day when the same is so delivered or served, or upon which in the ordinary course of post it would be delivered.

ORDER 11. SERVICE OUT OF THE JURISDICTION.

Cases in which allowed.

1. Service out of the jurisdiction of a Civil Bill or other originating document, or notice thereof, may be allowed by the Court whenever :—

(iii) by its terms or by implication to be governed by Irish Law, or

(f) the action is one brought in respect of a breach committed within the jurisdiction of a contract, wherever made, even though such breach was preceded or accompanied by a breach out of the jurisdiction which rendered impossible the performance of the part of the contract which ought to have been performed within the jurisdiction ; or

(g) the action is founded on a tort committed within the jurisdiction ; or

(h) any injunction is sought as to anything to be done within the jurisdiction, or any nuisance within the jurisdiction is sought to be prevented or removed, whether damages are or are not also sought in respect thereof ;

Parties may submit to jurisdiction, or agree as to the place and manner of service.

3. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Order, the parties to any contract may agree :—

(a) that the Court shall have jurisdiction to entertain any proceeding in respect of such contract ; and also, or in the alternative,

(b) that service of any document in any such proceeding may be effected at any place within or out of the jurisdiction on any party, or on any person on behalf of any party, or in any manner specified or indicated in such contract. Service of any such document at the place (if any) or on the party, or on the person (if any) or in the manner (if any) specified or indicated in the contract, shall be deemed to be good service wherever the parties are resident, and if no place, or mode or person be so specified or indicated, service out of the jurisdiction of such document may be ordered.

Time for appearance to be named in the Order.

6. Any order giving leave to effect service, or to give notice out of the jurisdiction, shall limit a time after such service or notice, within which the person to be served may enter an appearance, and such time shall depend on the place or country where or within which the document is to be served, or the notice given.

Additional powers.

11. Nothing herein contained shall in any way prejudice or affect any practice or power of the Court under which, when lands, funds, choses in action, rights or property within the jurisdiction are sought to be dealt with or affected, the Court may, without purporting to exercise jurisdiction over any person out of the jurisdiction, cause such person to be informed of the nature or existence of the proceedings, so that such person shall have an opportunity of claiming, opposing or otherwise intervening.

Discharge of order may be applied for.

12. Any person served with an originating document, or notice thereof, may apply to the Court on notice to discharge the order authorising service.

ORDER 12. APPEARANCE, DEFENCE, LODGMENT AND COUNTERCLAIM.

Service and entry of Appearance may be effected by post.

1. If a defendant intends to defend a Civil Bill or other proceeding, he shall enter an appearance in the Office in the prescribed form. Such form shall be lodged with or sent by post to the County Registrar so as to reach the Office before the expiration of the time limited for appearance, and a copy of such form shall at the same time be lodged with or sent by post to the plaintiff (if he sues in person) or his Solicitor.

Time for Appearance.

2. Save where otherwise provided by these Rules, the time for entering an appearance shall be ten days from the service of the Civil Bill or other originating document, exclusive of the day of service, unless the Court shall otherwise direct.

Appearance on behalf of defendant under disability.

3. Where no appearance has been entered, within the time allowed, to a Civil Bill, or other originating document, for a defendant who is an infant, or a person of unsound mind not so found by inquisition, the plaintiff shall, before further proceeding with the action against the said defendant, apply in the Office in the manner prescribed in Order 16 of these Rules, for an order that some proper person be assigned guardian ad litem of such defendant by whom he may appear and defend.

Service and entry of Defence.

4. A defendant who has entered an Appearance as aforesaid shall, within the further period of ten days thereafter, give or send by post to the plaintiff or his Solicitor and lodge with, or send by post to, the County Registrar a notice in writing in these Rules referred to as the Defence.

Defence.

5. The Defence shall state clearly the grounds upon which the defendant disputes the plaintiff's claim. Subject to the provisions of Order 57 no defence shall be admitted to defeat the claim or any part thereof unless, in the opinion of the Judge, it could fairly have been inferred from the particulars given in the Defence.

All defences in law or equity available.

6. Every defendant in ejectment proceedings shall be entitled to plead every defence which he may have at law or in equity.

Set off or Counterclaim.

7. A defendant in an action may set off or set up by way of counterclaim against the claims of the plaintiff, any right or claim, whether such set off or counterclaim sound in damages or not, and such set off or counterclaim shall have the same effect as a cross action, so as to enable the Judge to pronounce a final judgment in the same action, both on the original and on the counterclaim. But the Judge may, on the application of the plaintiff before trial, if in the opinion of the Judge such set off or counterclaim cannot be conveniently disposed of in the pending action, or ought not to be allowed, refuse permission to the defendant to avail himself thereof.

Lodgment with plea of tender.

8. With a Defence setting up a tender before action, the sum of money alleged to have been tendered must be brought into Court.

Lodgment in satisfaction.

9. Any defendant may with his Defence lodge in Court an amount which he alleges is sufficient to satisfy the plaintiff's claim, and such lodgment may be with an admission or denial of liability. Where there is more than one claim or cause of action the defendant shall state in respect of which of them such lodgment is made.

Lodgment may be by document separate from Defence.

10. A defendant making a lodgment under the last preceding Rule may, at his option, intimate such fact by a document other than and in addition to his Defence, and in such event such document shall be kept by the County Registrar in a separate file and neither he nor any other person shall disclose the fact of such lodgment to the Judge until he shall have decided all issues between the parties save the liability for costs. Such document shall be in the form prescribed by these Rules, and shall be filed at the same time as the Defence, and a copy thereof served with the Defence.

Acceptance of Lodgment.

11. Save in the case of a lodgment with a defence of tender, the plaintiff, may within ten days after such lodgment as aforesaid, serve notice on the defendant that he accepts the amount lodged, which notice shall operate as a stay of all further proceedings and the settlement of the plaintiff's claim in respect of which the lodgment was made, save as to costs.

If the plaintiff is under legal disability, then, together with notice of acceptance of the amount lodged, he shall serve a notice of motion on the defendant to have such acceptance approved by the Court, and thereafter no further proceeding in the action shall be taken except by leave of the Judge, and, on the hearing of such notice of motion, the plaintiff may be declared entitled to such costs as the Court may consider just, whether such acceptance is approved or not by the Court.

Payment out after acceptance.

12. Where the plaintiff, not being under legal disability, accepts the amount lodged, payment thereof shall be made to him without the necessity for any decree or order by the Court, upon his lodging with the County Registrar a notice of acceptance of such amount in full satisfaction of the claim in respect of which the lodgment is made. Such notice shall be signed by the plaintiff.

Costs where lodgment accepted.

13. Where the plaintiff, not being under legal disability, accepts a lodgment under this Order, he shall be at liberty, in case his entire claim is thereby satisfied, to tax his costs after the expiration of four days from the service of notice of acceptance, unless the Judge shall otherwise order, and in case of non-payment of the costs within seven days after such taxation, to enter judgment for his costs so taxed.

Costs where lodgment not accepted.

14. If the plaintiff, not being under legal disability, does not accept the amount lodged within the time named, he shall be liable for all costs thereafter incurred on foot of the claim in respect of which the lodgment was made, unless he obtains judgment for a greater amount than that lodged, exclusive of costs. If any costs are awarded to a party under this rule, such costs shall be deducted from the amount lodged and shall be paid to the party who has made the lodgment before payment of the balance (if any) to the other party.

Non-disclosure of lodgment to Jury.

15. When a cause or matter is tried by a Judge with a Jury, no communication to the Jury shall be made either of the fact that money has been paid into Court or of the amount paid in. The Jury shall be required to find the amount of the debt or damages, as the case may be, without reference to any payment into Court.

Late entry of Appearance or Defence.

16. No Appearance or Defence shall be entered after the time specified in these Rules without the leave of the Judge or of the County Registrar, and no Defence shall be entered unless the defendant has previously entered an Appearance as required by these Rules.

No pleading after Defence.

17. No pleading subsequent to Defence, or Defence and Counterclaim, shall be allowed.

ORDER 13. SECURITY FOR COSTS.

Application for Security.

1. When a party shall require security for costs from another party, he shall be at liberty to apply by notice to such party for such security ; and in case the latter shall not, within seven days after service thereof, undertake by notice to comply therewith, the party requiring the security shall be at liberty to apply to the Court for such security by motion on notice grounded upon affidavit ; and every such application shall be made before the party seeking the security takes any step save entering an appearance in the cause or matter after his right to such security shall have arisen, unless the Judge shall, under special circumstances, otherwise order.

Plaintiff outside jurisdiction.

2. A defendant shall not be entitled to an order compelling the plaintiff to give security for costs solely on the ground that the plaintiff resides outside the jurisdiction of the Court.

Affidavit of merits.

3. No defendant shall be entitled to an order for security for costs by reason of any plaintiff being resident out of the jurisdiction of the Court, unless upon a satisfactory affidavit that such defendant has a defence upon the merits.

Security, how fixed.

4. In any action or matter in which security for costs is required, the security shall be of such amount and be given at such time or times, and in such manner and form, as the County Registrar shall direct, subject to an appeal to the Court.

Bond, to whom given.

5. Where a bond is to be given as security for costs, it shall, unless the Judge shall otherwise direct, be given to the party or person requiring the security, and not to an Officer of the Court.

ORDER 14. PARTICULARS AND FURTHER PARTICULARS IN CLAIM OR DEFENCE.

1. In all proceedings for the recovery of book or shop debts, or other running accounts, the plaintiff shall furnish full particulars of his demand within a reasonable period before, or at the time of, the service of the Civil Bill.

Parties may obtain copies of documents and inspect the originals.

2. A defendant, at any time after service of a Civil Bill upon him and before delivery of a Defence, or a plaintiff at any time after delivery of a Defence or Counterclaim, may apply to the other party by notice in writing for copies of all or any of the accounts or documents upon which the Action or Defence or Counterclaim is founded, and such copies shall be delivered within seven days after receipt of such notice on payment of the usual scrivenery charges.

The party delivering such copies shall forthwith, on notice in writing being given, allow the other party to inspect the originals of such accounts or documents as are in his possession or procurement.

Further particulars.

Any party to a proceeding may also, at the time specified in the last preceding Rule, by notice in writing require the other party to furnish such further information as is reasonably necessary as to any specified matters arising upon the claim in a Civil Bill or upon the Defence or Counterclaim.

Court may order particulars.

4. A further and better statement of the nature of the Claim or Defence or Counterclaim, or further and better particulars of any matter stated in any pleading, notice, or written proceeding requiring particulars, may in all cases be ordered upon such terms, as to costs and otherwise, as may be just, and the Judge may order, in a case of failure to comply with such order, that the Claim or Counterclaim shall be stayed or dismissed, or the Defence struck out.

Time for pleading after delivery of particulars under Order of the Court.

5. The party at whose instance particulars have been delivered under an Order of the Court shall, unless the Order otherwise provides, have the same length of time for pleading after the delivery of particulars that he had at the date of the service of the notice of the application. Save as in these Rules provided, an order for particulars shall not, unless the order otherwise provides, operate as a stay of proceedings, or give any extension of time.

With leave of the Court.

The plaintiff may, at any time before the receipt of the defendant's Defence, or after the receipt thereof, before taking any other proceeding in the action (save any interlocutory application), by notice in writing wholly discontinue his action against all or any of the defendants, or withdraw any part or parts of his alleged cause of complaint, and thereupon he shall pay such defendant's costs of the action, or, if the action be not wholly discontinued, the costs occasioned by the matter so withdrawn. Such costs shall be taxed, and such discontinuance or withdrawal, as the case may be, shall not be a defence to any subsequent action. Save as in this order otherwise provided, it shall not be competent for the plaintiff to withdraw or discontinue the action without leave of the Judge, but the Judge may before, or at, or after the hearing or trial, upon such terms as to costs, and as to any other action, and otherwise, as may be just, order the action to be discontinued, or any part of the alleged cause of complaint to be struck out. The Judge may, in like manner, and with the like discretion as to terms, upon the application of the defendant, order the whole or any part of his alleged grounds of defence or counter-claim to be withdrawn or struck out, but it shall not be competent for a defendant to withdraw his Defence, or any part thereof, without such leave.

ORDER 19. CHANGE OF PARTIES.

No abatement by marriage, death or bankruptcy.

1. An action, proceeding or matter, shall not become abated by reason of the marriage, death or bankruptcy of any of the parties, if the cause of action survive or continue, and shall not become defective by the assignment, creation, or devolution of any estate or title pendente lite ; and, whether the cause of action survives or not, there shall be no abatement by reason of the death of either party between the verdict or the finding of the issues of fact and the judgment, or between the pronouncement and recording of the judgment or order, but the judgment or order may in such case be entered notwithstanding the death.

Continuance of action on death, marriage or bankruptcy.

2. In case of the marriage, death, or bankruptcy, or devolution of estate by operation of law, of any party to an action, proceeding or matter the Judge may, if it be deemed necessary for the complete settlement of the questions involved, order that the personal representative, assignee, trustee, or other successor in interest, if any, of such party be made a party, or be served with notice, and on such terms as the Judge shall think just, and the Judge shall make such order for the disposal of the action, proceeding, or matter, as may be just.

Service and effect of Order.

5. An order obtained as in the last preceding Rule mentioned shall, unless the Court shall otherwise direct, be served upon the continuing party or parties, or their Solicitors, and also upon each such new party unless the person making the application be himself the only new party, and the order shall from the time of such service, subject nevertheless to the next two following Rules, be binding on the person served therewith, and every person served therewith who is not already a party to the action, proceeding, or matter, shall be bound to enter an Appearance thereto within the same time, and in the same manner, as if he had been served with the originating document.

Discharge of Order where no disability.

6.
