Jane Doe 622952 v. Zhang 2020 Ont SCJ

Plaintiff wanted a video discovery. The defendant objected because, he said, the case involved credibility, best assessed in person. The judge did not agree that a purpose of discovery was to assess credibility; its purpose was to discover evidence and obtain admissions. Given the pandemic, he ordered discoveries and mediation by video. This case should not be taken as instructive to a situation in which there is an allegation of tailoring evidence.
