Apology Act, Statutes of British Columbia 2006, chapter 19.
Donoghue v Stevenson was the seminal negligence case for the Anglo-related common law jurisdictions. The paper argues that it recognises the moral issue about responsibility for harm and that if Stevenson had apologised perhaps the case would never have gone to the House of Lords. While it would be sad not to have the case, generally the avoidance of litigation is a good thing and the modern protected apology, which works to prevent law from stopping the ordinary social use of the apology, is also a good thing.
