(1) Despite chapter 4 , an originating process in which the cross-vesting laws
are relied on may be served outside the jurisdiction.
(2) If a defendant
served outside the jurisdiction under subrule (1) does not file a notice of
intention to defend, the plaintiff must not take a further step in the
proceeding unless the court gives leave to proceed.
(3) The court must not
give leave to proceed unless it is satisfied—
(a) jurisdiction under the
cross-vesting laws is being invoked; and
(b) the court is a convenient court
in which to decide the matter.
(4) An application for leave to proceed must
be made by application or it may be included in the application for directions
under rule 56 .
(5) An order giving leave to proceed does not prevent the
court from subsequently transferring the proceeding to another court.
