Adelaide Interior Linings Pty Ltd v Romaldi Constructions Pty Ltd [2013] SASC 110

The appellant in this matter appeals from an interlocutory decision of a judge of the District Court. The respondent was found liable by an adjudicator under the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 2009 (SA) (`the Act') to pay the appellant money owed for work completed. The respondent sought an injunction from the District Court preventing the appellant from obtaining the adjudication certificate. It is alleged the appellant is impecunious and unable to repay the monies if the respondent is successful in its claim for damages. The judge granted an injunction restraining the appellant from obtaining an adjudication certificate under the Act, finding there was a high level of likelihood the appellant was insolvent.
