We were intrigued to learn that KosInteractive LLC has created
the U.S. "Fed Courts" app for Android and
Apple devices which contains helpful information about U.S. federal
courts rules of procedure and court information. The app provides
access to the PACER
(Public Access to Court Electronic Records) database, and the
procedural rules for appellate, bankruptcy, civil, and criminal
proceedings. The federal rules of evidence and the U.S. Supreme
Court procedural rules are also available. One drawback – the
information isn't searchable or indexed with hyperlinks.
In any event, there seems to be no Canadian equivalent for
litigation or procedural apps.
A quick search in the Apple iTunes stores for "Canada
tax" returns 54 results, including an array of federal and
provincial tax calculators. "Canada courts" returns five
items, including apps related to the Controlled Drugs and
Substances Act, mortgage foreclosures, U.S. Miranda warnings, and a car dealership. A
search for "Ontario civil procedure" returns one item,
and "Canada tax court" returns zero items.
We are reminded of the very helpful event app developed by the
Foundation that has become a regular feature of the
Foundation's national and regional conferences.
We are confident that Canadian tax professionals would welcome a
broader array of court and litigation procedure apps that would
provide mobile access to most or all of the court and procedural
information we're stuffing into our oversized litigation

It's not often that our little blog intersects with such titanic struggles as the U.S. presidential race – and by using the term "titanic" I certainly don't mean to suggest that anything disastrous is in the future.
J.J. v. C.C., is an interesting case in which the court held that an automotive garage owes a duty to minor children to secure the vehicles on the premises by locking the cars and safely storing the car keys...
