R v Noltcho,
2016 SKPC 26 (CanLII), per Martinez J
15 months stayed "the accused’s 1.5 day trial commenced on April 18, 2016, but was unable to be completed on the second day due to an overbooked court docket. On the accused’s Jordan application, the Court noted it was “obvious that the adjournment of the case was not caused by the defence – it was caused by the state, due to an overbooked courtroom” (at para. 42). The Court found that court time was available between April 18, 2016 and October 3, 2016; however, mutual unavailability of counsel meant the continuation could not be scheduled until November 3, 2016. In the result, the Court apportioned one month of delay to defence, reflecting defence counsel’s unavailability through October 2016." [1]
