Supreme Court of Canada to consider “full appreciation” test for Summary Judgment

The Supreme Court of Canada today has granted leave to appeal in Robert Hryniak v. Fred Mauldin et al. (Ont.) (Civil) (By Leave) (34641).  The Supreme Court of Canada will consider the Court of Appeal for Ontario decision in Combined Air Mechanical Services Inc. v. Flesch2011 ONCA 764 [“Flesch”], which created a new judicial test for summary judgment: the “full appreciation” test, upholding a lower court finding of civil fraud against Toronto businessman Robert Hryniak. See my backgrounder here.

The appeal is to be heard with Bruno Appliance and Furniture, Inc. v. Robert Hryniak (34645). Coram: McLachlin / Rothstein / Moldaver.
