Codification of Judicial Jurisdiction

I just read Ted Tjaden’s post about Ontario courts assuming jurisdiction over out-of-province defendants.

Professor Janet Walker, of Osgoode Hall Law School, is preparing a report on this issue. She undertook the project as the inaugural OHLS LCO Scholar in Residence at the Law Commission of Ontario. This is not officially an LCO project (it was not approved as a project and its recommendations will not be subject to approval by the LCO’s Board of Governors), rather the LCO has supported the project by posting on our website, facilitating consultation, translation into French and will issue the final report. The final report should be released soon, but in preparation you can read her consultation paper (with suggested draft language) on codification of when Ontario courts should assume jurisdiction on the LCO’s website.
