My sincerest wishes for a happy, healthy and joyous new year to you all. 2015 was an exciting and eventful year. Regardless what comes in 2016, the Court of Appeal will continue to release important and interesting decisions and we will continue to report on them.
This month's netletter features appeals involving the nature of a gift given as part of dowry, a bank's knowing assistance in a breach of trust, the interaction between correcting a misnomer and limitation periods, an insurer's duty to defend and the first case in Ontario in which aggregate damages have been awarded in a class action. This month's author, Stuart Zacharias, also provides his top five problems with Star Wars. It is likely the most negative thing written about Star Warssince the new sequel came out in December.
