CIPPIC Granted Leave to Intervene in Warman v. Fournier

| March 15, 2010

Yesterday, Madame Justice Aitken of the the Ontario Divisional Court approved CIPPIC's motion seeking leave to intervene in Warman v. Fournier, an appeal which will address important issues surrounding the role of online anonymity in the discovery process.  CIPPIC will argue that, by ordering the disclosure of identifying documents, the ruling being appealed failed to provide adequate safeguards for user privacy.  The appeal will be heard Wednesday, April 8, 2010.
