Need to know more details on how you will be impacted by High court stay order given that you are neither the petitioner nor the respondent.
You have an implead option through which you can implead yourself in the said suit, but you need to provide grounds for impleadment.
An implead petition is to be filed in high court, stating grounds (how your rights are affected by High court order) and request high court permission(it is called leave of appeal in high court parlance) for impleading you in the said case.
