WASTED COSTS ORDER HEARING

This is a matter in which the court on its own motion initiated an

inquiry into whether a wasted costs order should be made against Mr.

Kevin Williams, attorney at law for the defendant in this matter.

'The Civil Procedure Rules address this issue. Rule 64.14 sets out the

procedure to be used whenever the court is minded to make such an

order either on its own motion or on the application of a party to the

proceedings. Rule 64.13(1) permits the court to make wasted costs

orders against the attorney at law personally. Rule 64.13(2) defines

wasted costs. This definition is identical, except for irr~materiacl hanges,
