Osprey Capital Partners v. Gennium Pharma Inc., 2010 ONSC 2338 (CanLII)

Starting at para 41, the Master discusses what is covered in a discovery plan, and states that the plan does not need to identify key documents or issues for examinations for discovery. Rather, the purpose of the discovery plan is "is to ensure that counsel meet promptly to attempt agree on the "plan" that will govern the discovery process; i.e. the extent of documentary production required, the anticipated timing and length of the examinations for discovery, and the names of the persons intended to be produced for examinations for discovery."  (Editor's note: might be a problem of terminology, since standard practice in e-discovery is to agree on names of key custodians - i.e. those sources most likely to yield relevant information.)
