Wesaquate v Steven Webb, 2012 SKQB 2

  • January 04, 2012

Date: 2012-01-04 I.D. McLellan J. | Link

Defendant in a motor vehicle accident seeks production of all material on the plaintiff's Facebook account. The court noted that "(n)othing in the plaintiff’s examination for discovery contains answers that reveal or even suggest that her Facebook site may contain relevant material." The court dismissed the application, saying "In order for a court to order production of a document, it must have some evidence as opposed to mere speculation that a potentially relevant undisclosed document exists. In other words, the defendant is not entitled to go on a fishing expedition into the private posting of the plaintiff on her Facebook".
