The following cases were recently reported by the Hon Mr Justice Bokhary. See below for His Lordship’s remarks and observations by way of Editor’s Notes.

Next Digital Ltd v Commissioner of Police [2021] 2 HKLRD 857

"This ruling addresses important matters of procedure and substantive law."

Chan Nga v Cathay Pacific Catering Services (HK) Ltd [2021] 2 HKLRD 874

“In arriving at the view of the law set out in the second of the above holdings, the learned Judge relied on a number of unreported Hong Kong decisions and a reported decision of the English Court of Appeal.”

Leannie Co Ltd v Lau Yu Kuen [2021] 2 HKLRD 1171

“The Judge had regard to the change in litigation culture brought about by Civil Justice Reform.”

H v W (Child Relocation) [2021] 2 HKLRD 1251

“This judgment illustrates the sort of grounds on which the Court of Appeal will disturb a family judge’s exercise of discretion in making a relocation order.”

803 Funds Ltd v Director of Buildings [2021] 2 HKLRD 1274

“In holding that the applicant’s interest in the promotion of law and order was not sufficient in itself to give it standing in this matter, the learned Judge did refer to other factors as well. And the fact that the applicant was not pursuing any private interest did result in costs not being ordered against it.”
