Alberta, Canada


The following excerpt is from Juke v. John Doe, 2009 ABQB 557 (CanLII):

In Kurian v. Alberta, 2007 ABQB 369, 431 A.R. 141, 2007 CarswellAlta 1462, the provision of two medical reports, amongst other things, was held not to have materially advanced the action. The importance of these medical reports was not directly discussed but from the context of the decision it appears that they were not considered important documents.
