Courthouse Libraries BC has pointed us to a handful of new practice directions and notices to the profession over the last few weeks.
- The Honourable Thomas J. Crabtree (Chief Judge of the BC Provincial Court) issued a notice to the profession, which discusses correct forms of address for judicial officers in the Provincial Court
- Also from the Chief Judge, a notice to the profession regarding mediation of claims for more than $5000 or for personal injury claims
- Chief Justice Bauman issued two new practice directions for the BCSC – PD – 29 – Model Companies Creditors Arrangement Act Initial Order and PD-30 – Model Receivership Order. These directions rescind PD-15 ad PD-16, and come into effect on June 30, 2011.
None of BC’s court websites offer RSS feeds dedicated to alerts of this nature, so it’s particularly helpful and appreciated when Courthouse Libraries BC points to them.
