Practice – Civil litigation. The Intellectual Property Enterprise Court (IPEC), having struck out the present claim for patent infringement, proceeded, in the circumstances, to make the claimant the subject of an extended civil restraint order (CRO). It held, among other things, that, since the meaning of 'a judge of the High Court' in para 3.1(2) of Practice Direction 3C was not limited to a puisne judge of the High Court and there was no reason to suppose that the jurisdiction of the IPEC was otherwise limited in relation to CROs, there was jurisdiction to grant an extended CRO.
