Big lack of blogging lately. It might take me another week of head-down work before I get time for extra-curricular reading, but we’ll see.
This is a second reminder about the OBA privacy and litigation section dinner on civil procedure and privacy. It’s on November 19th from 5:30 pm (cocktails) to about 8:00 pm. Liam McAlear and I will co-chair a panel discussion between Catherine Beagan Flood, Matin Felsky, Alex Cameron and members of our audience.
We have a prep meeting coming up (also over cocktails), so if you have any questions you want to put to the panelists please feel free to e-mail me or, if you’re not shy, comment below.
Here is the promo:
What’s all the hush-hush about? Privacy and Civil Procedure: Current Issues and Cases you need to know
Trends in communication and information management are giving rise to new issues in the litigation of civil claims. When should a court make an order to reveal the identity of a person who has spoken harmful words anonymously? In what circumstances should personal information be redacted from productions? At whose cost? How sensitive should parties and courts be about the disclosure of personal information in court filings and decisions given the trend towards increased accessibility of court records?
Join our panel of experts as they reflect on the privacy issues arising in civil practice. The discussion will be based on the following current issues and cases.
- Identifying the anonymous defendant – BMG Canada Inc. v. Doe
- Production of personal information within and across borders – Datatreasury Corp. v. Royal Bank of Canada
- Whole disk inspections and protective orders – Innovative Health Group v. Calgary Health Region
- Internet publication, personal privacy and the open courts principle – Moore v. Bertuzzi
