The Honourable Allen M. Linden & Bruce Feldthusen

The Honourable Allen M. Linden was a Judge of the Federal Court of Appeal from 1990 to 2009. Before that, he served as a Trial Judge on the Superior Court of Ontario from 1978 to 1990. A former Professor of tort law at Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto, Canada for two decades, Mr. Linden has taught in the U.S., Australia and the U.K., and has written several books and scores of articles about torts. He continues to teach part-time at the University of Ottawa and Pepperdine University, School of Law in California. In 1965, he authored a statistical study on Compensation for Auto Accidents which led the Province of Ontario to adopt a no-fault auto insurance plan in 1969. He acted as Executive Director of the Canadian Institute on the Administration of Justice from 1974 to 1978. He chaired the Law Reform Commission of Canada from 1983 to 1990. He is co-author, with Bruce Feldthusen, of the Torts and Negligence volumes of Halsbury's Laws of Canada.

A member of the American Law Institute, he is now participating in the preparation of the Third Restatement of Torts, helping to revise the Second Restatement of Torts which was drafted by Dean William Lloyd Prosser, his teacher at U.C., Berkeley, where he earned his Master of Laws and Doctor of the Science of Jurisprudence. He was appointed as an Officer to the Order of Canada on July 1, 2015.

Bruce Feldthusen has been teaching and writing about tort law for thirty years, primarily in Canada, but also in the United States and Australia. He was a professor of law at the University of Western Ontario from 1977-1999, and became Dean of the Common Law Section of the University of Ottawa in January 2000. He is well known for his book, Economic Negligence, now in its fifth edition, and as co-author of the popular casebook Canadian Tort Law, Cases Notes & Materials, 14th Edition, with The Honourable Allen M. Linden and Lewis Klar. Feldthusen's analysis of pure economic loss has been adopted by the Supreme Court of Canada and now provides the organizing framework for all negligence actions in that field. Feldthusen was the research director for the Ontario Law Reform Commission's 1989 study on Exemplary Damages which has been cited with approval and adopted in many common law jurisdictions in Canada and abroad.
