Melia's Take

  • The Blind Side

    A recent court decision involving an incident in a senior men’s recreational hockey League in Ottawa caught my attention. The incident involved two players who collided behind the net in this non-contact league. One player was knocked unconscious by the hit, sustaining physical injuries and as a result, some loss of income. He charged the other player with assault. After hearing the evidence from both sides, the judge in the case convicted the defendant of aggravated assault and handed down a sentence of probation for 18 months and $5,000 in damages to be paid to the plaintiff.
