Staying proceedings to save costs
Court of Appeal
“Even when there was no error in a first-instance judgment in a family case concerning conflict of laws, it was not only open to the Court of Appeal, but incumbent upon it to avoid any further wastage of costs and stay the English proceedings until the foreign court had decided whether it was first seised of the matter.”
