Hhhmmmm ….

2012SCC32

2012 SCC 32 is Clements v. Clements. The cases are listed chronologically below. The 19th, which isn’t included, is Clements. The search is limited to court cases. If you check for cases citing Clements through the citation tab on Clements, itself, you’ll get 20 hits. The 20th is a workers’ compensation tribunal decision.

I’ll try the search on one or the other of the commercial databases some other time.

Anybody notice a pattern?

Care to comment on the meaning of that pattern?
