  • Innovator Company v. Canada (Attorney General), 2017 FC 548

    The Court adjourned the Applicant's motion for a confidentiality order. The underlying proceeding is an application seeking judicial review of the Minister's decision requiring that the Applicant address patents listed against the Other Innovator's product. The Court found that the Other Innovator is a person directly affected by the order sought in the underlying application, and that it ought to have been named as a respondent. The motion was adjourned until after such time that the Other Innovator is served with the Notice of Application, among other things. An appeal was filed and has been heard, but no decision has yet been rendered.
