Reminder to the Bar from the Courts of Nova Scotia: Two copies of Briefs required

It has come to the Courts’ attention that Counsel do not always file two copies of Briefs as required by Civil Procedure Rule 40.03 (1)(2) >>

  1. A party who submits a brief, other than a brief for a settlement conference, must file the brief, a duplicate of the brief for the judge, one book of authorities that conforms with Rule 40.06, and no duplicate book of authorities.
  2. The duplicate must be delivered to the prothonotary with the copy for the record or to the judge’s office, as the judge directs.

Please ensure that two copies of Briefs are filed with the Courts.
