Dispute Resolution analysis: In an application to stay an order to file a second acknowledgement of service, the court accepted that to require the filing of that acknowledgement of service could incur wasted costs and acceded to the application. In an application to stay an order for discharge of a freezing injunction, the court held that notwithstanding the fact that permission to appeal had been refused on the basis that it did not have a reasonable chance of success, that did not mean that an appeal would necessarily be frivolous and that the balance of injustice will often require the freezing order to be maintained so as to not render any intended appeal nugatory.
