Reported Cases


Areas of Law considered in this case: - Car Accidents - Limitation Periods - Civil Litigation

Atkins v. Holubeshen, [1984] O.J. No. 309

In this case I acted for the insurance company who was representing the defendant in this car accident.

Justice Henry was extremely sympathetic to the Plaintiff, who had had her earlier action against the defendant dismissed for her former lawyer's failure to answer medical undertakings and produce medical documentation. The Plaintiff was not kept informed by her former lawyer as to the true state of her lawsuit Mr. Justice Henry found, and this proved fatal to my client's request for dismissal (although my client had no complicity in the former lawyer's failure to properly represent his client).

The plaintiff's new lawyer answered the outstanding medical undertakings and set the matter down for trial. My client objected and requested a dismissal of the action.

After writing that I had ably presented the case for the defendants at paragraph 11 of his decision, Mr. Justice Henry proceeded to distinguish each of the legal precedents that supported my client's position for dismissal, and allowed the Plaintiff's lawsuit to continue to trial on an expedited basis.

This case is a good example of how, despite having the law on your client's side, a judge will do equity and justice in a matter based on the judge's sense of fairness.
