RANA v RANA, 2022 ABQB 111


9.4: Signing judgments and orders
10.49: Penalty for contravening rules
13.45: Notice to be given to court officers

Case Summary

In an attempt to prevent further misconduct from the Applicant, the Court had previously imposed interim court access restrictions on the Applicant. Despite these restrictions, the Applicant submitted a request to file an additional Statement of Claim and an “Application for Permanent Injunction” in a proposed Action.

After canvassing the case law, Rooke ACJ denied the Applicant leave to file the Statement of Claim and “Application for Permanent Injunction.” As a result of the continued misconduct of the Applicant, and pursuant to Rule 10.49(1), Rooke ACJ ordered the Applicant to pay the Clerk of the Court a penalty of $2,500. Rooke ACJ specified that the resulting Orders were to be served on the Clerk of the Court pursuant to Rule 13.45 and that the Applicant’s approval of the Order is dispensed with under Rule 9.4(2)(c).
