Notices of Appeal in Lesage v Mauritius Commercial Bank
In a recent judgement (Lesage v Mauritius Commercial Bank – 2012 UK PC 41) Lord Kerr said this:
"The grounds of Appeal
In the section of the Notice of Appeal in which the appellant was invited to specify the grounds of Appeal, reference was made to a document entitled "Application for Permission to Appeal" which was annexed to the Notice.
The annexed document contained a long, discursive recital of facts and legal argument running to some 8,500 words. The Board deprecates the practice of attaching such a document to the Notice of Appeal. Grounds of Appeal should be succinctly stated. They should not rehearse facts nor should they contain legal argument."
Blake Morgan acted for the respondent.
