Where the defendants in an action for infringement of database rights applied for orders seeking a stay of the proceedings and for their actions to be heard together, the court would grant such applications where it was desirable or necessary to do justice in accordance with the overriding objective of the CPR. In the instant case, in order to be fair to the parties and to save court resources, justice required that the orders sought be made.
