Drawing up and filing of judgments and orders 1.1 Rule 40.2 sets out the standard requirements for judgments and orders and rule 40.3 deals with how judgments and orders should be drawn up.
1.2 A party who has been ordered or given permission to draw up an order must file it for sealing within 7 days of being ordered or permitted to do so. If he fails to do so, any other party may draw it up and file it.
1.3 If the court directs that a judgment or order which is being drawn up by a party must be checked by the court before it is sealed, the party responsible must file the draft within 7 days of the date the order was made with a request that the draft be checked before it is sealed.
1.4 If the court directs the parties to file an agreed statement of terms of an order which the court is to draw up, the parties must do so no later than 7 days from the date the order was made, unless the court directs otherwise.
1.5 If the court requires the terms of an order which is being drawn up by the court to be agreed by the parties the court may direct that a copy of the draft order is to be sent to all the parties:
(1) for their agreement to be endorsed on it and returned to the court before the order is sealed, or
(2) with notice of an appointment to attend before the court to agree the terms of the order.
In the point 1.5 if the court order is drawn up by the court, it is to be agreed by the parties.
In the point 1.3 if the court order is drawn by the party, it is checked by the court. There is no mention of another party checking, agreeing, verifying.
In my layman understanding that can create a situation where a party drafting the order is in an advantageous position because they can submit an order, without asking another party for approval.
Me being that "another party" - how to ensure that I also can approve the court order?
