Welcome Charles Adler Listeners

I’d like to welcome all my new readers who are here following yesterday’s interview with Charles Adler of Corus Radio. You can click here to listen to my portion of the interview:  charles-adler-erik-magraken-interview-september-8-2011 (clip courtesy of CJOB 68 Winnipeg, Corus Radio Network)
Charles canvassed the case in Illinois involving children suing their mother for alleged emotional distress.  The conversation then turned to the thresh-hold for suing for psychiatric injuries in British Columbia and the “Loser Pays” system.
For more on these topics you can click here to read my archived posts addressing lawsuits for psychological harm, and here for my archived posts on BC’s Loser Pays System.

My Interview on National Radio Today with Charles Adler: Bars That Over Serve Patrons

Today I was interviewed by Charles Adler of Corus Radio on the topic of commercial hosts who over serve their patrons and civil lawsuits for damages.
The law in Canada has long recognized that a commercial host can be successfully sued if they serve patrons to the point of intoxication and those patrons then are injured or cause injury to others.  Coincidentally just last week I wrote an article discussing the responsibility of Canadian bars and nightclubs to take reasonable steps to see that their patrons are reasonably safe.

As always, feedback is welcome!
