Paul McGivern quoted in Lawyers Weekly

The December 9, 2016 issue of Lawyers Weekly reported on Benhaim v St. Germain2016 SCC 48, a recent decision of the Supreme Court of Canada which upholds the long-held principle that causation does not have to be proven with scientific certainty. In commenting on this case, Paul McGivern noted that this decision follows three recent Supreme Court cases that have attempted to maintain a level playing field between plaintiff and defendant by not overly stressing scientific evidence, while keeping the burden of proof with the plaintiff. One of those three cases was Ediger v Johnston 2013 SCC 18, in which Paul McGivern was co-counsel for the successful appellant.
