Service difficulties - Will UCPR r 117 provide the answer?
Jackson, Sheryl (2013) Service difficulties - Will UCPR r 117 provide the answer? Proctor, 33(5), pp. 48-49.
In Amci Pty Ltd ACN 124 249 485 v Corcoal Management Pty Ltd  QSC 50 Jackson J considered an application for an order under r117 of the Uniform Civil Procedure Rules 1999 (Qld) (UCPR) in relation to informal service of an originating process on a corporation registered in the Ajman Free Zone in the United Arab Emirates. The decision appears to be the first time a Queensland court has examined the scope of r117 of the UCPR, and relevant considerations influencing the exercise of the discretion under the rule, when the defendant is outside Australia.
