Form of Order

Posted on April 18, 2019 | Posted in Civil Litigation, Five Liners

Schnarr v. Blue Mountain Resorts Limited 2018 Ont C.A.

The court noted that an order reflects the ultimate decision, not the reasons for it. Conclusions regarding issues are not to be in the order, absent a request for a declaration. Further, when costs are determined on a different date than the merits, there should be two orders, each with the appropriate date: one relating to the merits and the other relating to costs. This decision related to an appeal in the Court of Appeal, but would seemingly apply to a trial decision and order(s).
