Join us to discuss "Rising to the
Challenge of Vexatious Litigants"
Handling a claim with a self-represented plaintiff usually
means additional time, legal defence costs and frustration.
We talk about vexatious litigants, but there are a range
of other options available that are less extreme than having the plaintiff
declared a vexatious litigant. Picking the right strategy in the initial
handling and litigation could mean the difference between timely resolution and
prolonged litigation. Having pleadings struck, summary dismissal, case
conference, or a motion for securities for costs are all available options.
Learn from case law how to tell if your plaintiff is a
vexatious litigant and, if they are, what it will take to have them declared and
what effect that will have on your case.
