FEATURE Australia CEO Manny Papadoulis has failed in an application for a pre-action discovery order against business rival International Stage Lines.
Mr Papadoulis was trying to discover whether International Stage Lines was using a computer system that he had developed for his coach business.
To obtain such an order, the applicant has to show the court that he or she has made reasonable enquiries before seeking an order for discovery.
Master David Newnes dismissed the application because he ruled that Mr Papadoulis had not made "reasonable enquiries".
