(Ont.)

Civil procedure – Pleadings

The applicant Ms. Lin sued the respondents as her former employer for alleged sexual harassment and racial discrimination. She unsuccessfully attempted to note the respondents in default. A master of the Superior Court struck out portions of her amended statement of claim, and set aside her noting in default of the respondents. The Superior Court dismissed an appeal by Ms. Lin, and in subsequent decisions, the Divisional Court and the Court of Appeal dismissed her additional motions seeking leave to appeal. The Supreme Court of Canada denied Ms. Lin’s leave to appeal (36543). After this Court denied leave to appeal, the respondents moved before a master of the Superior Court to dismiss the action for failure to comply with interlocutory orders of the Superior Court, including the orders to deliver an amended statement of claim and to pay costs.
