Summary Judgment

Posted on May 25, 2017 | Posted in Civil Litigation, Five Liners

Sims v. Zaitlen 2017 Ont SCJ

A case management judge has jurisdiction to refuse to allow a party to bring a motion for summary judgment. In making the decision, the judge must determine whether the motion (or mini-trial) would provide a fair and just adjudication of the dispute in a timely, affordable, and proportionate procedure.
