Is there a common claim between the parties?

British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from Grewal v. Grewal, 2017 BCSC 291 (CanLII):

Applying the first part of the analysis set out in Merritt v. Imasco Enterprises Inc., supra, at para. 15, I determine that common claims do not exist between the parties. However, are they so interwoven as to make separate trials at different times before different judges undesirable, and fraught with problems and economic expense? In order to answer this question, a further analysis outside the pleadings must be made.
