MacKinnon v. Irvine Funeral Home, 2019 ONSC 4464

Tara Lemke successfully brought a summary judgment motion on behalf of the funeral home to strike the Plaintiff’s claim in its entirety. This case arose from the tragic demise of the Plaintiff’s son in a car crash and a dispute between the Plaintiff and his estranged former spouse over how the deceased’s remains were to be dealt with. The Plaintiff claimed against the funeral home for breach of contract, deceit and intentional infliction of mental distress. Justice Gomery concluded that the evidence presented did not support the causes of action being alleged and granted the motions for summary judgment brought on behalf of each of the Defendants.
