The Attorney General of British Columbia today filed a Notice of Motion and 10 affidavits supporting the Province's request to stay two terms in a judgment made by Justice Griffin in the Supreme Court of British Columbia on Jan. 27, 2014.
If granted by the Court of Appeal, the stay of proceeding would suspend the effect of two terms of the court judgment, pending appeal of Justice Griffin's decision.
For a stay of proceeding to be granted, an applicant must apply before a Court of Appeal judge and the application must demonstrate:
- The appeal has merit.
- There would be irreparable harm to the applicant if refused.
- The balance of convenience favours the applicant.
The filed material, including affidavits, is publicly available at the Court of Appeal registry or media can request an electronic version from the contact listed below.
The hearing will be held in the Court of Appeal.
