Sotos LLP lawyers David Sterns and Jennifer Pocock assist in Supreme Court of Canada intervention

David and Jennifer are part of the Canadian Bar Association’s counsel team which will be intervening in the Supreme Court of Canada later this month. The case before the court will decide when courts may decide a complex case by way of summary judgment and when such cases should only be decided at a full trial.

Beyond that, the court will be asked to consider ways to make the civil justice system more affordable and timely for all litigants. “These are issues that all lawyers practicing before the courts should care deeply about,” says Mr. Sterns.

It is an honour to be part of a team representing the Canadian Bar Association in advocating for an improved civil justice system.
