63.2. The Tribunal may, on request or on its own initiative after allowing the interested parties to be heard, dismiss a proceeding it considers abusive or dilatory or make it subject to certain conditions.
If the Tribunal finds that a party is making abusive use of a proceeding to prevent the execution of a board decision, it may also prohibit that party from presenting an application before the board except with the authorization of and subject to the conditions determined by the chairman or any other person designated by the chairman.
On ruling on whether a proceeding is abusive or dilatory, the Tribunal may order a party to pay, in addition to the costs referred to in section 79.1, damages for any injury suffered by another party, including to cover the professional fees and other costs incurred by the other party, or award punitive damages if warranted by the circumstances. If the amount of the damages is not admitted or cannot be easily calculated at the time the proceeding is declared abusive, the Tribunal may summarily determine the amount within the time and on the conditions it specifies.
