According to the Superior Courst on Justice of Ontarion, what is the meaning of "Notice that Action Will Be Dismissed"?
Province/Territory relating to question: Ontario
What are the basic facts?
Has there been a delay in moving the matter forward?
A statement of clain has been filed against me. I am an osteopathic manual paractitioner. I am not aware of any delay.
I need the basic facts then as I don't know what is going on.
I was served with a claim of statement on April 30th stating that a legal prodeeding had been commenced against me by one of my patients.The date of issue is Oct. 31, 2011. The plaintiff claims I injured her during a treatment give Nov. 2, 2009. The document states that if I wish to defend this prodeeding I must propare a Statement of Defence within 20 days after this Statement of Claim is served on me. It also says that I may serve and file a Notice of Intent to Defend in Form 18B prescribed by the Rules of Civil Procedure. This would entitle me to 10 more days within which to serve and file my Statement of Defence. If I fail to defend, judgement will be given against me in my abscence and without further notice to me. I received the Notice that Action Will Be Dismissed in the mail today. Does this mean that I will not be allowed to defend myself?
No it doesn't.
It sounds like this matter is considered to be done but I am not sure why.
I suggest you call the Courthouse tomorrow and indicate that you are self-representing, and received this document in the mail and do not understand why.
If what they say is not clear post back and let me know what they said.
I've been waiting to hear back from you after you called the court so I was surprised to find out that I received negative feedback.I wonder if you accepted because the site sent you an email asking you to do so?That ended the chat unfortunately but we can certainly post up and back now.
