Applicant challenged judge’s case management endorsement. Applicant’s position is that judges who hear applications and motions on the Toronto Region Estates List do not have the jurisdiction to manage litigation on the list. The court found that “[a] judge engaged in case -- or litigation -- management also possesses the inherent powers to give directions regarding the mode of giving evidence-in-chief and the length of the oral examination of any witness at trial. Such powers are a necessary incident to the judge's ability to manage the case in a proportionate manner.”
