The Supreme Court of Canada recently denied the leave application in this leading case on expert evidence. In a unanimous decision, the Ontario Court of Appeal ordered a new trial after finding the trial judge in a personal injury matter failed in his gatekeeper duties in allowing the defendant’s expert, Dr. Monty Bail’s, testimony.
Join Jessica L. Kuredjian, counsel for the respondent at the Ontario Court of Appeal, for a discussion of the case and how defence counsel might want to approach retaining witnesses and leading their evidence at trial.
