Anderson v Pieters 2017 BCSC 954. The plaintiff had sought to adduce significant, questionable expert evidence in this jury trial for personal injuries arising from a motor vehicle accident. Tim Pettit, on behalf of the defence, was successful in excluding much of this questionable expert evidence. Following trial, on the issue of costs, the court denied the plaintiff recovery of the cost of many of these reports and the time taken at trial to argue their admissibility.
