The Appeal Committee of the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal (CFA) ruled unanimously in a recent determination that it had no jurisdiction to abridge the time for a litigant to seek leave to appeal to the court in a civil cause or matter. This article draws on the judgment of the court in A Solicitor v Law Society of Hong Kong (Secretary for Justice, intervening) (December 2003) and contends that the Appeal Committee's determination was per incuriam and that the Appeal Committee failed to seize the opportunity presented by the application to further describe the court's power of final adjudication.
