Childs v. Desormeaux, (2006) SCC 18, (2004) 71 O.R. (3d) 195 (C.A.), (2002) 217 D.L.R. (4th) 217 (SCJ)

Childs v. Desormeaux, (2006) SCC 18, (2004) 71 O.R. (3d) 195 (C.A.), (2002) 217 D.L.R. (4th) 217 (SCJ)

This case was one of a series of actions started against "social hosts" represented by Eric Williams from trial to the Supreme Court of Canada. In what the Globe and Mail called one of the most significant cases of 2007, Williams Litigation Lawyers successfully defended the hosts of a social gathering after one of their guests caused a serious motro vehicle accident- leading to a precedent-setting Supreme Court of Canada statement on individual responsibility and alcohol consumption. Legal observers have opined that this may be the most important tort case in Canada in thirty years.
