Sherman v. Pfizer Canada Inc., 2015 FCA 107

The Prothonotary ordered the production of certain documents, and the Court dismissed the appeal of this Order as moot. This is a further appeal.

The appellants appealed the Prothonotary’s Order but did not seek to stay the order and indeed, produced documents to the respondents. The Court held that the appeal was moot on the basis that the Order had been substantially complied with, and refused to exercise the Court’s jurisdiction to hear the appeal notwithstanding this compliance. The Court of Appeal found no reviewable error in this regard.
