Ontario trial judge: "Paper must vanish from this Court..."

So says Canadian Justice David M. Brown in a case administration decision penned on April 5 in Bank of Montreal v Faibish, 2014 ONSC 2178 (CanLII). The always-excellent SLAW, Canada's online legal magazine, just reported this. Excerpt from Justice Brown's decision, triggered in part by "profound frustration":

I know there are judges available who are chomping at the bit to conduct more e-trials. Paper must vanish from this Court and, frankly, the judiciary cannot let the legal profession or our court service provider hold us back. Accordingly, I order that the six-week trial of the Loretta and Brome Actions be conducted as electronic trials. More than enough time exists before the October 6 start date to organize the trial materials electronically. I order counsel to provide me with a formal e-trial plan at the June 26, 2014 case conference.
