Legal Status as a Duty of an Expert

Throughout his imprimatur and representation in court, he holds himself out as a fraud and
security expert and adheres to the principal of the Duty of an Expert, as contained in the
Rules of Civil Procedure, Rule 4.1 which states:


4.1.01 (1) It is the duty of every expert engaged by or on behalf of a party to provide evidence in relation to a proceeding under these rules,

(a) to provide opinion evidence that is fair, objective and non-partisan;
(b) to provide opinion evidence that is related only to matters that are within the expert’s area of expertise; and
(c) to provide such additional assistance as the court may reasonably require to determine a matter in issue. O. Reg. 438/08, s. 8.

Duty Prevails

(2) The duty in sub rule (1) prevails over any obligation owed by the expert to the party by whom or on whose behalf he or she is engaged. O. Reg. 438/08, s. 8.

Mr. Jutsun recognizes and holds himself out as that expert that is duty bound to present to the court, evidence that is fair, objective and non-partisan. He recognizes that he may be in a dual position as both the Plaintiff in an action, and the expert pursuant to Rule 4.1, but submits to where “Duty Prevails” and is obliged to provide the best evidence possible to the courts.
