Appeals - Where Orders Breached

Cosentino v. Cosentino (Ont CA, 2017)

Here the Court of Appeal asserts it's practice of not hearing appeals where the appellant is in current breach of court orders:
[8] This court has consistently refused to hear from a party or entertain an appeal where the record shows continuing disobedience with court orders: see Dickie v. Dickie, 2007 SCC 8 (CanLII), [2007] 1 S.C.R. 346; Nowacki v. Nowacki, 2015 CanLii 41092 (Ont. C.A.); Martyn v. Martyn, 2010 ONCA 730 (CanLII); Burley v. Burley, 2009 ONCA 2 (CanLII), 244 O.A.C. 198; and Murphy v. Murphy, 2015 ONCA 69 (CanLII), 56 R.F.L. (7th) 257.
