This is why the civil justice system in Ontario has established certain procedures that must be followed in order for a party to move to the next stage.
These stages are designed to assist as follows:
- Clarify and potentially resolve factual issues in dispute;
- Clarify and potentially resolve any legal issues in dispute;
- Evaluate the strength of the other parties position;
- Evaluate the strength of your own position;
- Evaluate the weakness of the other parties position;
- Evaluate the weakness of your own position;
- Request disclosure of documents or particulars; and
- Obtain Judicial input or assistance.
The above are just some examples.
The formal procedures are referred to as an exchange of Affidavit of Documents, Examination for Discovery, Pre-Trial Conference, Motions, Settlement Conferences.
These steps and procedures are critical to a civil litigation dispute. If you are involved in such a dispute contact a lawyer immediately. You could prejudice yourself by not complying.
