Civil restraint order

A civil restraint order can be made against a party who has issued claims or made applications which are totally without merit: (1) a limited CRO may be made by any judge where there have been two or more such claims/applications; (2) an extended CRO may be made by certain judges where the party has persistently made such claims/applications; (3) a general CRO may be made by certain judges where the party persists but an extended CRO would not be sufficient or appropriate in the circumstances.
