Condo litigation during COVID-19 and beyond

Article Summary: 

Justice F.L Meyers ruled in Arconti v Smith that video-conference examinations should be required to keep the matter moving due to the recent social distancing requirements brought on by the pandemic. The plaintiffs were not agreeable to utilizing video conferencing technology, but Meyers held that all parties have the same opportunity to participate and to be heard. Justice Meyers highlighted that technology is part of the basic skill set required of civil litigators and courts, and that delays may occur while some parties take time to become accustomed to it. The takeaway is that we should do what is within our capabilities to continue operations with our clients, and that there is no reason why we shouldn't all be able to conduct business as usual in the vast majority of cases.
