Top 5 Civil Appeals and the Top 5 signs of Spring

Dated: April 17, 2018

Nothing says Spring like a good ice storm. More about that in a second.

First, the Top 5 Court of Appeal decisions from March, as selected by this month’s Netletter author, Andrew Murray. These deal with the ability of an insurer to bring a subrogated action in the name of an insured who is bankrupt, the latest entry in the final vs. interlocutory saga (including a stern warning from the court about the costs implications of bringing purported appeals of orders that are clearly interlocutory), a lawyer’s claim of authority to take steps on behalf of an incapacitated client, the dismissal at trial of claims of misuse of confidential information during a major commercial transaction, and resolving the conflict between the Occupiers’ Liability Act and the Consumer Protection Act, 2002 in the case of waivers that are signed prior to use of recreational properties.

Andrew also brings you his Top 5 signs of Spring. Some late-breaking honourable mentions: bags of salt, shovels, and winter boots.
