20th October 2020 – (Hong Kong) Singer G.E.M. who had a contract dispute with her manager, Hummingbird Music Limited last year. A law suit was filed against each other. Today (20th), G.E.M. applied to the High Court through a lawyer to delay the submission of the list of litigation documents, which was approved by in the Masters Chambers. The latest deadline is set on 17th November this year.
G.E.M.’s lawyer told the court today that G.E.M. is now working in the Mainland and will not return to Hong Kong until the end of this month. After arriving in Hong Kong, she will have to be quarantined for 14 days before she can move freely. Therefore, it takes more time to prepare for the lawsuit. However, the lawyer of Hummingbird Music Limited said that the previous court had postponed the deadline for submitting the list, and Hummingbird had completed the preparation before the original deadline. If it is postponed, the timetable for preparing the entire case may be affected.
After considering the submissions of both parties, the Master decided to approve G.E.m’s request to extend the deadline for submitting the list, but indicated that if she still cannot deliver the list of documents that day, her defence and counterclaim will be revoked. At that time, the Hummingbird can apply to the court for a summary judgment.
