8.4 Grounds of refusal of private prosecutions or application notices
(1) A registrar must not sign a court attendance notice, or an application notice, in proceedings commenced by a person other than a police officer or a public officer if of the opinion that the proceedings are frivolous, vexatious, without substance or have no reasonable prospect of success.
(2) Subrule (1) does not apply to proceedings under the Crimes (Domestic and Personal Violence) Act 2007.
Note. The Crimes (Domestic and Personal Violence) Act 2007 makes provision for the circumstances in which a registrar may refuse to issue process under that Act.
