In a strictly worded memorandum, Ontario Superior Court Justice David Brown says “tactical gamesmanship” by parties has no place in courtrooms funded by public resources.
Brown is managing a multi-party commercial dispute that has seen an avalanche of materials and numerous motions but no trial since starting six years ago.
