SCC Decision: Marine Services International Ltd. v. Ryan Estate

The Supreme Court of Canada’s recent decision in Marine Services International Ltd. v. Ryan Estate, 2013 SCC 44 provides a definitive answer with respect to employee injuries or fatalities in the marine context. This decision is important when it comes to the application of workplace health and safety legislation to compensate for workplace related injuries or death, especially in a maritime context.

An article explaining the decision, written by Section Chair, William Cahill,  is available here.


The August 2012 National Maritime Law Section annual meeting included a professional development program featuring the following speakers.

  • Douglas G. Schmitt (Alexander Holburn Beaudin & Lang LLP): “Wells Fargo v. MLT3 et al: Applicability of the Hague-Visby Rules to Coastal Trade”
     
  • W. Gary Wharton (Bernard & Partners): “Recovery for Psychological Loss in Maritime Cases”
     
  • Chris Giaschi (Giaschi & Margolis): “Maritime Law Update”
     
  • Simon Barker (Oland & Company): “The Scourge of Maritime Piracy: Recent Legal Developments, or lack thereof”

Presentation materials are available as a complimentary benefit to CBA members (membership # required)
