Ah, I’d like to say you heard it here first, but I cannot say that definitively. In any event, you may recall my April 15 post which advised that a new case management system was being rolled out today at the Toronto Superior Court.
As coincidence would have it, I was in Court today for a simple motion and after I obtained the Court’s Order, I went up to the registrar’s office to have it formally recorded in the system. Once I got there I saw only a few people waiting around (as compared to the usual 10 people if I’m super-lucky, 15 or so on a typical day and 25+ if it’s a bad day). I asked someone and was told “the system has broken down”. Yup, approximately 2 hours into the first day of the new system and it’s not working.
I hope you sued or did whatever you had to do in time. I’m sure the system will be up and running like a charm sometime in the next week (or two).
