Appeal foreseeable in broad challenge to PIPEDA’s interference with litigation

On February 20th, the New Brunswick Court of Appeal held that State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company did not need leave to appeal a January 30th order by the New Brunswick Court of Queen’s Bench. The Queen’s Bench had stayed State Farm’s application, which challenged the Privacy Commissioner’s jurisdiction to investigate its surveillance of a plaintiff in a motor vehicle claim. My summary of the January 30th case is here.

State Farm Mutual Automobile Assurance Company v. Canada (Privacy Commissioner), 2008 CanLII 6112 (NB C.A.).
