This month we express our most heartfelt congratulations to our friend and colleague, Jasmine Akbarali, on her recent appointment as a Judge of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. She will be greatly missed.
She did however leave us with another Lerners win for this month's top 5, in a case which considered the duty of care owed by an auto garage to teenagers who stole a car for a joyride. Rounding out the top 5 are decisions dealing with the validity of a municipal by-law addressing the placement of “community mailboxes”, motions to stay actions under the Arbitration Act and the arbitration clause in a sales agreement, respectively, and a motion for partial summary judgment in an action arising from the purchase of units in the Trump International Hotel.
Speaking of which…
This month's author, Mark Freiman, also brings you his top 5 list of Preston Sturges comedies to help you cope with your Trump hangover. Repeat viewings may be required.
