In Becker, the Court found the trial judge made no error by not considering an alternate theory that, though not raised and developed at trial, was never formally abandoned. In Toronto Std Condo Corp, the Court clarified that claims within the scope of an arbitration agreement must be arbitrated. This case also addressed stare decisis. Other interesting cases covered pre-trial procedure where a decade-old claim was further delayed due to COVID-19, and introduction of fresh evidence on appeal.
