For this last week:

1. MDS Inc. v. Factory Mutual Insurance Company, 2021 ONCA 594

[96] The trial judge relied on the American decision in MRI Healthcare to conclude that the resulting loss of use constituted resulting physical damage.

[14] Finally, I am aware that in many contexts, accommodations are made for unvaccinated persons. For instance, a student may nonetheless attend school even though they are unvaccinated as a result of medical or conscience-based reasons. This approach is the result of a cost-benefit analysis. It is thought that keeping every kid in school, even with

For this last week:

1. Conlin v Edmonton (City) Police Service, 2021 ABCA 287

[62] The appellants are correct that there is a fine line between a correctness standard of review and a finding that there was only one possible outcome that was reasonable. Empirically, there is never only one possible outcome, because there are always at least two: the challenged outcome selected by the decision maker, . . . [more]

For this last week:

1. Skoblenick v. Aviva General Insurance Company, 2021 ONSC 5340

[21] One might not ordinarily expect, in the exercise of professional courtesy between counsel, that a request for an adjournment of examinations to accommodate the personal schedule of one counsel would lead to a claim for costs thrown away. However, there was no obligation on the defendant to consent to the adjournment request. . . . [more]

For this last week:

1. Meads v. Meads2012 ABQB 571

[1] This Court has developed a new awareness and understanding of a category of vexatious litigant.

For this last week:

1. Pourshian v. Walt Disney Company, 2021 ONSC 4840 (CanLII)

[48] In my view, these are pleading issues that are not properly addressed on a jurisdiction motion. As held by the Court of Appeal in Rothmans, at para. 106, “the motion judge is not required to subject the pleadings to the scrutiny applicable on a rule 21 motion”. In this case, . . . [more]

For this last week:

1. Arksey v Sky Zone Toronto, 2021 ONSC 4594 (CanLII)

[58] The exclusions here do not undermine the terms of the agreement. The defendant was not deceptive in the least. The defendant is not, for example, promising insurance coverage, and then taking it away in exclusions in the small type. The deal here was that the plaintiff could use the defendant’s facility . . .

For this last week:

1. Norheim v Chief Judge of the Provincial Court of Alberta, 2021 ABQB 465 (CanLII)

[38] While the privative clause does purport to preclude any judicial review, that is not the law. For at least the last 40 years, case law has held that no privative clause enacted by any Legislature can remove a Superior Court’s jurisdiction to review actions and decisions . . . [more]
