JUDGMENT

Harmindar Singh Dhaliwal JCA:

[1] This appeal emanates from the Kuala Lumpur High Court Order dated 3 November 2017. The learned High Court Judge had dismissed the appellant's application pursuant to O 12 r 10(2) of the Rules of Court 2012 ("ROC 2012") for a stay of proceedings in the High Court which application was premised on the ground of forum non conveniens. The appellant's position was that the forum conveniens to hear the dispute was the Courts of Florida, in the United States of America. The High Court, however, dismissed the appellant's application and found that Malaysia is the most convenient forum to hear the dispute.

[2] Aggrieved with this decision, the appellant appealed to this court. After hearing the parties and taking into consideration the written submissions, we allowed the appeal and set aside the orders of the High Court. Our reasons for doing so now follow and will constitute the judgment of the court.
