The applicant sought an interim order restraining the respondents
from publishing or printing any matter relating to the Civil Appeal in
which the applicant was a respondent and still pending before the
Supreme court, until the substantive application for a permanent
injunction, was heard and determined. On the ground that that the
publications were prejudicial not only to the applicant but also to the
proceedings in the pending appeal.
Court considered whether the application was properly before it.
