C; 1. This is an application by Mr. Francis, the defendant, for relief from

sanctions under rule 26.8 of the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR). He is seeking

to have the judgment of Straw J (Ag) set aside on the basis that his failure

to pay $8,000 costs on or before July 13, 2003, was not intentional. How did

the defendant find himself in this position? It all began on the 15'~ day of

October 2003 when the matter came before Harris J for case management.

Her Ladyship made a number of orders.
