Republic of Ireland Law Questions Answered by Experts
1. I would advise the Plaintiff to appeal the making of the instalment order to the same court to which the appeal of the substantive matter is being heard. Most likely the judge hearing the substantive appeal will postpone the payment of the instalment order until such times as the substantive appeal is heard. Be aware that it is most unusual that an instalment order is made in relation to costs of a lower court hearing when there is an appeal outstanding.
2. It appears as if the judge hearing the instalment order proceedings took a personal dislike of the Plaintiff in both raising the instalment order by 300% and by applying it against the pension of the Plaintiff. Accordingly, I would suggest that the Plaintiff get the matter heard on appeal by a neutral judge at the earliest opportunity. These facts are most unusual and seem to suggest that the Plaintiff has already been doubly punished for losing his action by the judge who heard the initial action.
3. This is a fresh question going beyond the scope of the existing question. So I would suggest you either rate the current question and then continue or else you file a separate question.
