MacLeod v Marshall, 2019 ONCA 842, Decision

Paul Pape, Shantona Chaudhury and Cristina Senese were successful at the ONCA in MacLeod v Marshall, a precedent-setting historical sexual abuse case.


The ONCA confirmed that a plaintiff’s entitlement to damages for loss of earning capacity is assessed on the standard of “real and substantial possibility” not “balance of probabilities” and upheld the jury’s award of $500,000 in punitive damages. Read the decision.
