Dear Valued Client,
Please note that effective today, Supreme Court Scheduling is enforcing Supreme Court Civil Rule 12-2(3) which requires that unless the court otherwise orders, each party of record must file a trial brief at least 7 days before a trial management conference. Late trial briefs will not be accepted. If trial briefs are not filed in time, the TMC will remain on the hearing list and the matter of the missed deadline can be addressed during the hearing.
Last month we advised you of amendments to the TMC rule (12-2) coming into effect on July 1, 2016. These amendments establish several new timelines. Failure to meet the timelines may result in trials being remove from the trial list. This notice prepared by the Supreme Court describes the new timelines and provides an example of how the timelines are calculated.
If you have any questions, please contact Dye & Durham’s Court Registry Support Services at 604-257-1854 or [email protected].
