Keshari & Ludhani [2019] FamCAFC 79

In Keshari & Ludhani [2019] FamCAFC 79, ground 5 contended:

“Coram merely means before or in the presence of another individual Coram non judice, is said of those acts of a court which has no jurisdiction, either over the person, the, cause, or the process. Such acts have no validity.”

The court responded:

“As to Ground 5, that is also incompetent, and frankly is a nonsense. The words “CORAM : O’BRIEN J” appearing on page 1 of the reasons for judgment merely signify that his Honour was the judge who heard and determined the application.”
