Ian Gold and Sean Murtha to Speak on the Impact of COVID-19 on Litigation in Ontario and Significant Court Decisions

On March 12, 2021, Ian Gold and Sean Murtha will present to the Society of Public Insurance Adjusters of Ontario (“SPIAO”).

Ian and Sean will discuss the procedural and practical impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had with respect to file handling and the litigation process, including the effect of the temporary suspension of limitation periods, how to schedule virtual assessments of plaintiffs by defence experts, and the transition to remote hearings. They will also go over a number of significant court decisions which have been released over the past year, with a particular emphasis on how those cases impact municipalities and school boards.
