Absence of party

             (1)  If a party is absent when an appeal is called on for hearing, the opposing party may apply to the Court for an order that:

                     (a)  if the absent party is the applicant to the appeal:

                              (i)  the appeal be dismissed; or

                             (ii)  the hearing be adjourned; or

                     (b)  if the absent party is the respondent to the appeal:

                              (i)  the hearing proceed generally or in relation to a particular claim for relief in the appeal; or

                             (ii)  the hearing be adjourned.

             (2)  If an appeal is dismissed because the applicant to the appeal was absent, the applicant may apply to the Court for an order:

                     (a)  to set aside the dismissal; and

                     (b)  for the further conduct of the appeal.

Note:          The Court can make an order on its own initiative--see rule 1.40.
