Equity - Unjust Enrichment

Apotex Inc. v. Eli Lily and Company (Ont CA, 2015)

In this case the Court of Appeal engaged in an interesting and enlightening discussion of two possible forms of unjust enrichment, what it calls the traditional “transfer of wealth” cases and the remedial “profiting from wrong” cases. It also generally canvasses the present state of unjust enrichment law in Ontario [paras 26-60]. Useful reading for anyone involved in an unjust enrichment case.
