Today, we’re finishing our review of the individual Justices’ voting records in tort cases.
Justice Kruger has participated in 18 tort cases since taking her seat in 2015. She has voted for defendants in seven cases and for plaintiffs in eleven cases. In 2015 and 2016, she voted for plaintiffs in seven of eight cases.
Nine of those cases were won by the defendants at the Court of Appeal. Justice Kruger has voted to affirm four of those nine decisions and to reverse in five cases.
Eight of Justice Kruger’s tort cases were lost by the defendant below. Justice Kruger has voted to reverse three of those eight decisions.
Justice Groban has participated in only one tort case so far. He voted for the defendant’s position. That decision was won by the defendant at the Court of Appeal.
Join us back here next Thursday as we turn our attention to a new area of law.
