October 31, 2012 | Andrew M. Robinson | Toronto

Andrew M. (Sandy
) Robinson,  Elizabeth Ackman and Andrea
Farkouh of Miller Thomson’s Toronto
office have prevailed in a recent Supreme Court of Canada decision involving
their client, the Toronto Catholic District School Board versus Southcott
Estates, a subsidiary of Ballantry Homes Inc.

The ruling highlights how a company
that is a separate entity, but is part of a larger group of companies, is
obliged to mitigate damages in a case of a breach of contract.
