JUDGMENT

Leong Wai Hong JC:

Introduction

[1] This appeal deals with a short legal point. But it is an important point.

[2] I have written this Judgment as I have taken judicial notice from a few appeals before me that some lawyers are not aware that "no appeal shall lie to the High Court from a decision of a subordinate court in any civil cause or matter where the amount in dispute or the value of the subject matter is ten thousand ringgit or less except on a question of law."

[3] This filter is set out in s 28(1) of the Courts of Judicature Act 1964 ["CJA"].

[4] The respondent/plaintiff had sued for RM3,000.00. After full trial he was awarded judgment for RM3,000.00 and costs of RM100.00 from the Magistrate. Dissatisfied, the appellant/defendant had filed an appeal to the High Court.

[5] However, as the amount in dispute or the value of the subject matter is ten thousand ringgit or less, the appeal must be on a question of law.
