Excerpt from "Vancouver airport ruling could boost 'procedural fairness' before Canadian Competition Truibunal - lawyers", Kathryn Leger, PaRR:
The litigation process before the tribunal "will be considerably fairer and subject to a more level playing field" for respondents as a result of the appeal court ruling, said Cal Goldman, chair of the competition, antitrust and foreign investment group at Goodmans, the law firm that won the appeal on behalf of the Vancouver Airport Authority.
Before the ruling, respondents before the tribunal had to disclose all relevant documents to the commissioner, but the commissioner was entitled to claim public-interest class privilege to withhold from disclosure to respondents every document and all information from third-parties for an investigation until the eve of trial, said Julie Rosenthal, the Goodmans' litigator who argued the bulk of the appeal.
