Buhr v. Manulife Financial, 2014 BCCA 404

Manulife Financial

Jonathan Lim acted as counsel for the respondent, Manulife Financial, at the B.C. Court of Appeal. The appellant’s claim for life insurance benefits, said to be payable under a group life insurance policy, was dismissed on the merits at a summary trial (Buhr v. Manulife Financial, 2014 BCSC 460). The appellant challenged the trial judge’s finding that the policy in question was cancelled and replaced by other coverage.  The Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal on the basis that the claim is statute-barred due to the expiry of a six-year limitation period initiated at the date of death and it was therefore unnecessary to determine whether the trial judge erred in dismissing the claim on its merits.
