10 months and 2 weeks is not sufficient time for an 11B in my opinion. 11 months is the minimum "goal line."

A paralegal I spoke to used the phrase "The Magic 13" to refer to 13 months but I guess it depends on the case and the JP.

Ya i think so too

How should i approach in terms of getting that typed version of the notes as agreed upon by the officer? Should i wait for them then go to trial and say they did not give it to me? Or should i wait until like weeks before the trial and if it doesnt come by then fax a request?

The officer said they will contact me so ya

That would reduce the chance of the officer showing up as they would most likely only have one case on that date. .
The courts don't care which JP is "sitting" for court. They schedule as per officer availability/schedule (courts also have each officer's booked vacation dates to avoid)
That may be true if a motion is filed in advance, but when one is asked for in court and the JP decides to give an adjournment (after telling you that you should have given proper notice) he asks the court reporter what his next trial date is, and it is set for that one or the next one if the reporter says, "you have xx cases on that day and there is no room". The cop is sitting there and no one asks him/her whether it is a good date for them or whether this is their "special" day where all their cases are heard.

Sorry but that is not exactly true...
During my first trial in Dec. 2010, the officer and the prosecutor were the ones deciding the date of adjournment not the JP.
All the trials being delayed for any reason were set by the two officers that were there and it the court reporter simply was entering the info into the court computer system. I guess they are simply now working with the officers to decide when they an make it so they can get the maximum number of convictions...

I don't think 10 months is going to cut it, especially since the time between the date they offered in Feb and the one you got at the end of March is arguably attributable to you and not the crown.

hEY

So abt 1 month remaining till the new trial date and no typed version of the notes provided to me as agreed upon by the officer. Should i just wait and go the trial and tell them abt the agreeement that we had or send them one notice. BTW the officer said they will contact me with regards to picking up the typed version of the notes.

If you only had a verbal with the officer then there is no proof of anything. Send a fax, keep the transmission receipt, to cover your bases, then you have an arguement.

Court transcript might have it if it was said in front of the JP...
