LawFact of the Day: Civil Litigation

Here is your daily LawFact from Wise Law for Wednesday March 9, 2016. Today we are talking about Civil Litigation.

A video posted by @wiselaw on

Civil lawsuits in Ontario’s Superior Court are commenced by issuing a document known as a Statement of Claim. A Defendant who is served in Ontario must file a Statement of Defence within 20 days of service.

If a Defendant is served elsewhere in Canada or the US, a Statement of Defence must be filed within 40 days of service. If a Defendant is served outside Canada or the US, the Statement of Defence must be filed within 60 days of service.
