Top 5 Civil Appeals and the Top 5 Weekend Getaway Destinations

Dated: May 31, 2019

Welcome to this month’s Lerners Court of Appeal Netletter, highlighting the Top 5 appeals decided in April.

Another interesting mix this month: a supposedly unappealable arbitration award; the thorny issue of Crown liability and misfeasance in public office; the jurisdiction of the College of Optometrists over an out of province online dispenser; an oil spill liability decision; and the circumstances as to when an automobile insurer can void an insurance policy on the basis of material misrepresentation in the application after a serious accident occurs.

Jacqueline Fortner, who selected this month’s cases, describes five summer get away destinations, all in Canada and all quite wonderful.

Recently, Lerners welcomed Debbie Boswell as an associate in our London office. Debbie’s background includes a clerkship for Justice Karakatsanis in the Supreme Court of Canada and a stint as an associate at Sullivan Cromwell in New York City. Debbie has instituted a Supreme Court of Canada blog and the link is below. Worth a look and a good one to follow.
And please note the Lerners 90th Anniversary Charitable Giveaway. Free to enter, and a chance for your favourite charity to be a winner. Details below.
