September 18, 2017 | By Kylie Larkin — Canada’s national newspaper, The Globe and Mail, has published an obituary tribute to Pepperdine Law professor Justice Allen M. Linden.  Justice Linden is considered the architect of Canadian tort law and served on the Supreme Court of Ontario.  Justice Linden taught Advanced Torts and The Rule of Law at Pepperdine.  Professor Richard L. Cupp contributed to The Globe and Mail tribute.

Via The Globe and Mail:

For many years, he spent winters as a visiting scholar, teaching tort law at Pepperdine Law School, a Christian university in Malibu, Calif. It wasn’t until last winter, when he became ill, that he gave it up.

“It was like having someone drop a golden egg on your property,” said Pepperdine Prof. Rick Cupp, who specializes in torts. “He’s one of the most distinguished torts scholars in the world. The William Prosser of Canada. Incredibly well-beloved.”
