Royds LLP v Pine [2012] EWCA Civ 1734; [2012] WLR (D) 395

“Where a litigant was entitled to a hearing of a renewed application for permission to appeal to the High Court but for good reason was unable to attend court, listing the application for consideration on the papers before another judge was a proper course to take. In an appropriate case the court had power to dispense with an oral hearing and to determine the matter on the papers, or to proceed with an oral hearing and give judgment in the applicant’s absence.”
