Another Jury Notice Struck Due to COVID-19

Last week, Alon Barda posted an article on our blog regarding a decision where the court struck a jury notice due to the delay that would be caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Another decision has been released where the court similarly struck a jury notice.  In Louis v. Poitras, 2020 ONSC 5301, Justice Beaudoin stated that none of the parties have an unfettered right to a jury trial.  He held that justice to the parties would be better served by proceeding to trial in a timely manner before a judge alone.
