Welcome Back Global Warming

Two days ago, that water was snow.

I've read some fun legal decisions recently.

In Chuang v. Manning, 2008 CanLII 14175 (ON S.C.), Justice Corbett shuts down a vexatious litigant:

"Mr. Chuang should understand, now, that the justice system has decided his case and will not permit him to re-try those issues, now, or ever. It is over. Finished. It is time for Mr. Chuang to move on. "

I was also happy to see in two short decisions from Justice Lemon in the Central-West Region of the Superior Court that documents go missing there like they do in the courthouse in Ottawa some times. Justice Lemon had the courtesy in both of these decisions to apologize "on behalf of the administration of justice." A search for that phrases on CanLii turns up only those two decisions [1 2].

I never thought I'd read "Oh no" in a legal document. Is this sort of fun typical?

It would depend on your definition of "typical", Michael. If by "typical" you meant "rare", then yes.
