Transport Minister Dr Omar Davies wants a review of his application seeking leave to go to the Judicial Review Court to challenge the jurisdiction of the Office of the Contractor General (OCG).
The transport minister had sought leave for the review court to determine whether the OCG had the authority to requisition an independent oversight panel set up to monitor three major government infrastructure projects.
Attorney General Patrick Atkinson, who represented Davies, had disagreed with the OCG's insistence that the oversight panel should provide formal reports on its deliberations regarding the projects.
But, on February 1, Supreme Court judge Lennox Campbell turned down the application for the review.
Now Atkinson is seeking to have a rehearing by the full court.
He said the application was filed last week and he was awaiting a response from the court.
However, Atkinson would not disclose the grounds on which he is seeking a review, saying he would not want to question the judge's ruling in the public domain.
The Government had established the panel to monitor the north-south link of Highway 2000, which spans Spanish Town, St Catherine to Ocho Rios, St Ann; the Gordon Cay Container Trans-shipment hub, and the Fort Augusta Container Terminal.
