Jeff Ooi's consolidation . The plaintiffs this morning asked for - and were granted - more time to study Screenshot blogger Jeff Ooi's application to consolidate his case with mine (NSTP & 4 others are suing me for defamation and in the opinion of his and my learned counsels there are many common grounds involving the two cases that warrant a consolidation).
Click here on why the two cases should be consolidated.
According to counsel Malik Imtiaz Sarwar, the learned Judge will next hear Jeff's application to strike out the plaintiff's original claims (the claims were recently amended) on April 24, 2007.
Last Monday, the court let me withdraw my application - with no order to costs - to strike out the claims made against me by NSTP & 4 Others . This was based on the fact that the plaintiffs had amended their original claims against me.
