@steve2 - like all other cases, that canadian one was a very weak case. It was a realtor who lost his 'clients' because his clients were jws. So the candian court said they are free to shun him, etc.
Have yet to see one on a person who is born in, who then has their parents and or children shun them, and not because they CHOOSE TO, but because the WT tells them they can't even text, email, or social media, because if they do, then jesus will hate them and kill them in armageddon.
As for damages, emotional distress, punitive, etc.
Also what I think adds more to a potential is how the WT advertises on it's FAQ, if a family member leaves, normal family relations continue. But then you see in their printed articles, don't even email or text a dfed family member.
But all these lost lawsuits, have been very weak. A person who converts as an adult, and losses their friends or clients. Much different than a born in who loses parents, never had much of a choice, or parent losses kids, etc. I only see weak lawsuits, not that they can still do these things without punishment.
