Saskatchewan Court of Appeal

Bayda, C.J.S., Vancise and Sherstobitoff, JJ.A.

May 13, 1987.

Summary:

The plaintiff obtained an ex parte order adding Rachul and Sandstra Bros. Transport as defendants. Both defendants applied to set aside the order.

The Saskatchewan Court of Queen's Bench, in a decision reported in 53 Sask.R. 140, dismissed the application. The defendants appealed.

The Saskatchewan Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal.

Practice - Topic 666

Parties - Adding parties - Adding defendants - Application of limitation periods - The Saskatchewan Court of Appeal affirmed that since the enactment of s. 44(11) of the Queen's Bench Act, a plaintiff seeking to add a defendant after the expiry of a limitation period need now satisfy only two criteria: first, that the claim against the proposed defendant arose out of the same transaction or occurrence as the original claim and second, that the proposed defendant will suffer no actual prejudice.
