Summary:

The Condominium Authority Tribunal (CAT) rendered a decision in the case of Metropolitan Toronto Condominium Corporation No. 1031 v. Lengyel. The Respondent submitted a motion requesting a confidentiality order, dismissal of the case, or a 90-day adjournment. The CAT granted a confidentiality order due to the presence of personal and medical information. However, the motion to dismiss was denied, as the issues were not deemed minor, and the case had a reasonable prospect of success. A 90-day adjournment was granted, allowing the Respondent time to prepare for participation. The CAT emphasized fairness and the need to proceed expeditiously.

The CAT emphasizes the importance of balancing confidentiality, fairness, and expeditious resolution when considering motions and requests in condominium disputes.
