Adjournments

Royal Bank of Canada v. Puzzolanti (Ont CA, 2018)

Here the court sets out the factors involved in a judge's discretionary decision whether to grant an adjournment or not:
[6] We do not see any error in the motion judge’s conclusion to proceed with the summary judgment motion in these circumstances. The motion judge’s decision is a matter within her discretion and will not be interfered with unless the judge has failed to take account of relevant factors and thus exercised her discretion unreasonably, such that the decision is contrary to the interests of justice: Boaden Catering Ltd. v. Real Food for Real Kids Inc., 2017 ONCA 248 (CanLII), at para. 17.
