The issues to be determined on a request for adjournment of an interlocutory suspension or restriction motion are whether it is appropriate to grant an adjournment and, if so, whether there should be an interim interlocutory suspension or restriction as a term of the adjournment: see Law Society of Upper Canada v. Bogue, 2017 ONLSTH 119. This involves “balancing the protection of the public with the licensee’s interest in appropriate time to prepare, given the circumstances”: Bogue at para. 24. As noted in Bogue at para. 23, a short adjournment is easier to justify than a long one, and “[a]bsent consent or an interim interlocutory suspension, adjournment to a date more than four weeks from the filing of the motion will rarely be appropriate.”
