2013 ONCA 356 (CanLII); Lerners acted for the appellant in this fire negligence case. The appeal considered the obligation of a trial judge to provide adequate reasons for his findings at trial, which involved conflicting testimony from numerous experts. The Court of Appeal for Ontario held that the while the trial judge committed an oversight when he failed to articulate a precise standard of care, the oversight did not constitute a reversible error. The appeal was dismissed.
