Reported Cases

Areas of Law Considered in this case: - Public Access to Records - Civil procedure - Appeals - Rules of Civil Procedure - Rules of Practice(Ont.) - Judicature Act - Courts of Justice Act, 1984(Ont.)

Howes v. Accountant of the Supreme Court of Ontario et al. (1986) 58 O.R. (2d) 345 (S.C.C.); (1984) 49 O.R. (2d) 121 (C.A.) and [1984] O.J. No. 1474.

I represented the Accountant of the Supreme Court of Ontario in this challenge to his authority to not publish or provide information from his records, to inquiring third parties. Howes was an " heirs locator " who claimed it was the public's right to access the Accountant's records and therefore Howes's right as well under Rules 222,522, 524 and 732 of the Rules of Practice (Ont.) - replaced by Rules 37.13(2); 59.05(1), (2), (3), (5), 73.02(2), (3) of the Rules of Civil Procedure, and under s. 129 of the Judicature Act - now replaced by s 147(3) of the Courts of Justice Act.

Howes wanted the names and addresses on file for the children who had been awarded moneys as minors or infants in court actions. In Ontario, moneys awarded to children under the age of majority are paid into court until the child reaches the age of majority. Although the court files relating to these actions are public and subject to search, the Accountant's records, to that point in time, had been restricted from public viewing.

In the late afternoon on the New Year's Eve before Rule 732 of the Ontario Rules of Practice governing the Accountant was to be changed, I was in court arguing this case before Mr. Justice Maloney. My arguments were based on the best interests of children and the supervisory jurisdiction of the courts relating to children's best interests, privacy, and public interest. My arguments on behalf of the Accountant of the Supreme Court of Ontario prevailed before Mr. Justice Maloney. Howes appealed this case all the way up the appellate ladder through to and including the Supreme Court of Canada. My arguments on behalf of the Accountant of the Supreme Court of Ontario were accepted by each of the successive reviewing appellate courts.
