COVID-19 Urgent Motion Endorsements

In order to assist members with understanding what qualifies as “urgent” under the Notice to the Profession, the MLA is maintaining this list of endorsements submitted by our members. As many of these matters will not be reported, if you have attempted to bring an urgent motion under the new guidelines we are asking that you email a copy of the endorsement to the MLA library (whether you were successful or not at having your matter judged urgent).
Thank you for assisting us with this initiative!

From the Notice to the Profession – Southwest Region April 2, 2020 
https://www.ontariocourts.ca/scj/notice-to-the-profession-sw/
The urgent matters we have already been hearing will, of course, continue to be a priority and will be triaged to ensure urgency. All urgent requests for hearings are to include an e-mail (maximum 2 pages) stating the relief requested and why it is urgent.  

Please send any endorsements you receive to library@middlaw.on.ca for posting here.
