Case Report – Court orders plaintiff to list relevant documents contained in Facebook site

20 Jul

Those following the litigation of production disputes related to Facebook pages will be interested in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice’s July 6th order in Wice v. Dominion of Canada General Insurance Co.

After hearing a motion in this motor vehicle accident claim, Boswell J. ordered the plaintiff to include relevant documents from his Facebook account in a further and better affidavit of documents, granted the defendant leave to cross-examine the plaintiff on the affidavit and ordered the plaintiff to preserve all information in his Facebook account for the duration of litigation. He followed the Court’s now well-known decision in Leduc v. Roman.
