Do I have to give him my request?
I saw a simliar situation this past week in criminal court, defence has to provide the document to prosecution for review, trial is now put over for another date for continuation to give prosecution time to thoroughly review the report.
Same thing happens when defence brings in "case law" before the court, if prosecution is not familiar with the "case law", a copy is then provided for review, most often takes a recess and/or trial put over for continuation on another date.
Above is merely a suggestion/thought and in no way constitutes legal advice or views of my employer. www.OHTA.ca
