A District court in a 2002 1st appeal, set aside a sub court verdict regards ownership of our father's land, as father died sudenly without a Will. The District court in 2002 decreed I and my only brother were equal co-owners of father's land. My brother in 2002
put a 2nd Appeal in the High court, which "Stayed" the 2002 District court decree naming me as a co-owner. Earlier in 1997 a builder had filed a suit against my brother for Specific Performance for father's land. In 2004, this builder ammended
this suit to add me also as a defendant to his suit
with my brother, due to the District court 2002
decree naming me as co-owner. But this decree had been 'Stayed' by High court in 2nd appeal in 2002.
I had NO contact with the builder at all.
Can the builder use a decree stayed 2 years earlier by High court, to sue me? The stay has not been vacated by High court.
Is the builder in contempt of High court?
Can I be sued by a builder using a STAYED judgement?
