Case Report – ABCA finds appeal of PIPA time limits issue moot

19 Nov

On November 14th, the Alberta Court of Appeal held that an appeal by the Alberta Information and Privacy Commissioner was moot because the complainant had passed away.  This leaves intact the Alberta Queen’s Bench’s decision that the 90-day time limit for completing an inquiry in section 50(5) of PIPA is mandatory.  It also may do away with the first drug testing complaint brought under PIPA.
