Almost 4 years have passed since the Supreme Court of Canada rendered its judgment in Pintea v. Johns. The National Self-Represented Litigants Project (NSRLP) published a report in October 2018 which examined the first 18 months of caselaw following this landmark decision. The 2018 report examined the courts’ application of Pintea, cases that distinguished Pintea, and the limitations on the Pintea decisions. Since 2018, the Westlaw database shows that there have been an additional 65 cases citing Pintea. This updated report aims to clarify the limitations on Pintea, and will also examine broad trends in how the courts have both applied and distinguished Pintea since October 2018.
