The following excerpt is from L.V.R. v. Mountain Institution (Warden), 2015 BCCA 442 (CanLII):
A justice in chambers has the discretionary power to order the production of documents so that a party may consider whether to bring a fresh evidence application. The applicable law was summarized by Madam Justice MacKenzie in Koch v. Koch, 2012 BCCA 280 at paras. 21-27. While a judge in chambers has the discretionary power to compel the production of documents, a precondition to such an order is that the documents have potential relevance.
