Lawyers tend to get excited when the courts create a new tort, and for good reason. The judiciary is reluctant to instigate such reform to the common law absent compelling facts, and a strong societal need for them to do so. In Seneca College v. Bhadauria, the Court of Appeal found that a cause of action existed for the tort of discrimination, on the basis that the Ontario Human Rights Code, 18 I regard the preamble to the Code as evidencing what is now, and probably has been for some consid...

Additional education is especially important during difficult economic times, in particular after the loss of a job.

This held true even for those who lost their jobs due to the 2008 recession, for most of the partic...

Discouraging Sexual Harassment Through Human Rights

Damages before the Human Rights Tribunal have historically been modest, especially when compared to similar cases before the Superior Court of Justice.

Europe’s top court limits bulk surveillance by member states

The European Union’s top court dealt a blow to bulk surveillance regimes in member nations, especially the UK, France, and Belgium.
