D. Crupi & Sons Limited v. Travelers Guarantee Company of Canada et. al., 2011 ONSC 5874 (Master) (Rule 29.2.03 – proportionality in discovery; Rule 31.06 – scope of discovery)

Judgment Released: October 4, 2011  Link to Judgment

On a refusals motion, the Court referred to Rule 29.2.03 (proportionality in discovery) and the principles articulated by Justice Perell in Ontario v. Rothmans Inc., including that while under the former case law the Rules provided for questions “relating to any matter in issue” and the scope of discovery was defined with wide latitude, the amendment to the Rule from “relating to any matter in issue” to “relevant to any matter in issue,” suggests a modest narrowing of the scope of examinations for discovery.
