Case Report – BCCA dismisses leave to appeal forensic inspection order

On September 9th, the British Columbia Court of Appeal dismissed an application for leave to appeal of an order for forensic inspection of a home computer. The applicants argued that the propriety of such orders is of broad significance to the practice, but Bauman J. responded, “In my respectful view, the plaintiff overstates the significance of the case and the scope of the order at bar.”
