As of September 7, counsel and litigants are able to receive reserved judgments released from the BCCA in chambers by email, on request.
The Registrar issued a Practice Note on August 31 providing more information, including the following:
Once counsel or a party is notified of the release date of reserve reasons for judgment by the registry staff, counsel should send an e-mail to the Court of Appeal reserve judgment office at [email protected].
The judgment will be e-mailed to you by reply e-mail at the same time it is released in chambers. This will usually be at 9:30 a.m. For your information, the judgment will usually appear on the court’s website before noon the same day that it is released.
