Lang Michener Fall 2009 In Brief


LAW NOTES cover a wide gamut from China, as a non-market economy, to the nitty-gritty of dealing with older workers.

Shareholder rights, property rights, union counter moves, overtime claims and a possible GST exemption make for some

profitable and interesting reading.

The lead article by James Musgrove and Esther Rossman discuses the very first damages award for misleading advertising in Canada. Workplace issues, like spy cameras

and responsibility for workers’ mental distress, are fully canvassed in separate articles.

On the corporate side, Amandeep Sandhu discusses proposed new governance rules, and Peter Wells and Hartley Lefton look at policy exclusions for faulty or improper design.

Matt Dewar joins in to discuss an interesting case to be heard in the highest court where food safety and illegal strike action will form the backdrop to other absorbing legal issues.

Dale Schlosser discusses a private search warrant in the context of a copyright action, and there are also intriguing articles about claiming your own losses and also those of your customers, and another about the

unintended consequences of comparative advertising.
