What if you found yourself at the receiving end of a judicial system, prosecuted for a fatal accident with no evidence of intoxication, excessive speeding, or aggressive driving? This is the tragic reality for a 21-year-old driver with no history of bad driving or criminal record, facing a heart-wrenching sentencing decision. Join us as we unravel this case with Michael Mulligan, with Mulligan Defense Lawyers. Michael helps us explore the implications of prosecuting cases where there are no apparent signs of bad driving, the delicate balance between law and justice, and the societal impact of such sentencing decisions.
Delving further into the world of complicated legal concepts, we navigate the labyrinth of vicarious liability in the context of a class action against ICBC.
The case involved an employee of ICBC selling personal contact information associated with the license plates of cars parked at the British Columbia Justice Institute where police and other public safety employees are trained.
The information was used to target the houses of the vehicle owners including with arsons and shootings.
Mulligan unravels the factors courts consider in these instances and the implications of ICBC’s appeal and whether is was wise for ICBC to attempt to avoid liability in the circumstances of this troubling case.
We also shed light on an intriguing case of a man appealing his sentence, dissecting the elements that come into play when a person asks for bail pending the hearing of a sentence appeal.
Unlike a person seeking bail prior to trial, someone who has been plead guilty and been sentenced no longer enjoys the presumption of innocence.
This episode promises to leave you with a fresh perspective on the intricacies of the law and the delicate balance between justice, liability, and compensation.
