Oh Canada!

Canada has a lot to prove as it prepares for the 2015 Pan Am Games to be held in Toronto.

My Canadian feature for the November issue of “The American Lawyer” and the January edition of “Corporate Counsel”:

If You Build It, They Will Come. A look at how Ontario used public-private partnerships (P3) to build the necessary facilities and infrastructure for the 2015 Pan American Games, and the law firms advising the province and companies involved.

It Takes a Village. The Pan Am Athletes’ Village, which holds the key to the long-planned revitalization of the Toronto waterfront, wasn’t a typical P3 project.

Preparing for the Pan Am Games is Keeping Canadian Lawyers Busy. Q&A with Infrastructure Ontario’s Eric Tilley, one of the in-house attorneys involved in the Pan Am P3 process. (subscription required)

Judge Calls $75 Trillion Damage Request in Limewire Request “Absurd”

Manhattan Federal Judge Kimba Wood Calls Record Companies’ Request for $75 Trillion in Damages ‘Absurd’ in Lime Wire Copyright Case. Not as absurd as Rebecca Black’s “Friday” – an Auto-Tuned stream-of-consciousness narrative that makes “Trapped in the Closet” seem like “A Day in the Life.” (subscription required)

UPDATE (10/26/12): I engaged in a little back-and-forth with Wikipedia over the validity of the $75 trillion figure. I managed to back up my reporting, though.
