The good weather has finally arrived and the Raptors continue to make progress in the playoffs. Nonetheless, it is not a time for distractions but for hard work to prepare for our summer vacations. The judges on the Court of Appeal have not slowed down their own hard work. This month's Netletter features appeal decisions dealing with the Indian Residential Schools Settlement, the standard of appellate review for class actions certification decisions, notice for wrongful dismissal under a fixed-term contract, when a contingency fee agreement is terminated and the limitation period for oppression claims.
This month's author, Jason Squire, also provides his top five legal movies. Many of Jason's picks are good examples of the difficulty a lawyer can have separating himself or herself from a client's cause.
