How much time has a party spent reviewing a document?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Carby v. Benoit, 2016 BCSC 1675 (CanLII):

Although the number of documents listed by a party is some measure of the time ordinarily spent on this item, that is not the only measure. The nature of the documents themselves must be considered. Some documents will need to be carefully scrutinized for solicitor-client privilege claims. Others will be so benign, but yet relevant, that little time need be spent in their review: Albert v. Conseil Scolaire Francophone de la Colombie-Britannique, 2007 BCSC 928.
