Supreme Court rules in favour of Tennis Ja

Published:Friday | March 4, 2016 | 3:00 AM

The Supreme Court of Jamaica has dismissed an application made last Friday for interim injunctions against Tennis Jamaica brought by one of its members, Joseph Dibbs, to restrain the holding of an extraordinary general meeting (EGM).

The EGM which was scheduled for yesterday was postponed by the board of Tennis Jamaica at a special emergency meeting on Monday shortly after the ruling was made. According to a release from Tennis Jamaica a new date for the EGM will be announced shortly. The meeting was postponed, the release said, to allow members to be apprised of the situation and to participate fully in the process of selecting a new administration.

The injunctions were sought in a claim which was seeking, among other things, a determination that John Azar was duly and validly elected president of Tennis Jamaica arising out of the annual general meeting of Tennis Jamaica held on November 19 last year.
