Nova Scotia Court of Appeal Hearing of DRC Appeal rescheduled
NEW DATES: November 18 and 19, 10 am – 4:30 pm; 1815 Upper Water Street, Halifax, Nova Scotia
The DRC’s appeal of its human rights claim based on the discriminatory impact of unnecessary institutionalisation and denial of meaningful access to community based options has been rescheduled.
As a result of measures taken in response to the Covid 19 pandemic and related closures of the Court of Appeal, the original hearing dates in May 2020 were cancelled.
Following a Chambers teleconference before Chief Justice Michael Wood on April 15, 2020, the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal has rescheduled the two-day appeal hearing to November 18 and 19, 2020 at 10 a.m.
The appeal hearing will take place at The Law Courts, 1815 Upper Water St. in Halifax.
