The judicial history of a case refers to the course or path the case has taken through the court system, from a trial decision, to a court of appeal, and possibly to the Supreme Court of Canada (note that not every trial decision gets appealed). One of the reasons you “note up” a case is to ensure the case you are reading has not been reversed or varied on appeal.
