Wednesday: What’s Hot on CanLII

DateJanuary 13, 2016

Each Wednesday we tell you which three English-language cases and which French-language case have been the most viewed* on CanLII and we give you a small sense of what the cases are about.

For this last week:

1. Mikolic v Tanguay, 2015 ONSC 71

[28] Although the trial judge was satisfied that the amounts the Plaintiff had received for past income replacement benefits had exceeded the tort award for past loss of income, he wrote that he could not determine from the evidence what amounts the Plaintiff had actually received under the settlement on account of future income replacement benefits.”

2. Rosenberg v 206 Bloor Street West Limited, 2016 ONSC 6

They may regret failing to amend their form of contract document to reflect better the practical difficulties associated with the vendor’s decision to allow purchasers to make selections “off-menu.” However, regrets are not synonymous with a default. At the time that the agreement was declared to be at an end, I cannot find that the plaintiff was in breach or unreasonably failing to make final choices. As noted in the survey of items above, in some cases the vendor was in the wrong. In many there was good reason for discussions as both parties were neither fully right nor fully wrong. It was the vendor’s choice to engage in an iterative process with the plaintiff. I see no provision of the agreement that gave it the right to unilaterally declare the process over in the absence of full performance on its own side.
