2.3 Transfer of proceedings from Small Claims Division to General Division: complexity, difficulty or importance of matters in dispute

(1) The Court may, on the application of a party or of its own motion, transfer proceedings to the Court's General Division if, at any time before judgment is given, the Court is of the opinion that the matters in dispute are so complex or difficult, or are of such importance, that the proceedings ought more properly to be heard in the Court's General Division.
(2) The Court may, on the application of a party or of its own motion, transfer proceedings that have been transferred to the Court's General Division under subrule (1) back to its Small Claims Division if the Court considers it appropriate to do so.
(3) An application for proceedings to be transferred under subrule (1) or (2) may not be made by a party to the proceedings later than 28 days before the day fixed for the trial of the proceedings.
