Hat tip to the Trial Lawyers Association of BC @(tla_bc) for pointing us to a pair of articles on BC’s overloaded courts system.
- Legal days could could double number of cases tossed (Vancouver Sun)
- B.C. courts are in crisis, say critics (CBC)
BC Law Watch noted that TLABC was concerned about this issue earlier this summer. Attorney General Barry Penner has acknowledged that recent judicial appointments will “address the workload pressures the court is facing,” saying “It’s a step in the right direction, but it’s not the only thing.”
