Recent amendments to Article 32 of the Courts of Justice Law, L. 14/1960, which governs the jurisdiction of civil Courts to issue interlocutory orders, introduce radical changes in this field. This includes the notable widening of court jurisdiction in respect of issuing interlocutory orders.
An article which is co-authored by Elias Neocleous & Co LLC Senior Associate Christiana Pyrkotou and Associate Aimilia Efstathiou, and published on Mondaq, explores the implications pertinent to the amendments including the legislative departure from the previous approach, marking a modernization of the legal system, accommodating societal changes and aligning with developments in common law case law. The article also raises questions about how Cyprus courts will navigate these legislative possibilities and whether pre-existing case law will influence their approach to the expanded jurisdiction for interlocutory orders.
