Legal Settlement Conferences

At the request of the Chief Justice of the Court of Queen’s Bench of New Brunswick, Council wishes to remind members of their legal obligations during the course of malpractice litigation.  During a law suit, the parties involved may be requested by the presiding judge to attend a settlement conference to assist in concluding the matter.  Physicians are reminded that, when such is ordered, they are obligated to attend with their lawyers.  Failure to do so can result in the matter not being settled and additional costs being imposed.
