Interlocutory Injunction Motion Struck

Back to all news On April 23, 2020, the Superior Court of Justice struck a motion for an interlocutory injunction seeking an order, among other things, to close the offices of a plaintiff’s former employer for two weeks and for the employer to pay its employees their regular compensation while the office was closed. The plaintiff claimed the relief was required to enforce the April 1, 2020 Order of the Chief Medical Officer of Health under the Health Protection and Promotion Act. LOLG, acting for the employer, sought to have the motion struck before it was scheduled for a hearing on the grounds that the plaintiff did not have standing to seek the relief set out in her notice of motion. The Court agreed with the employer, noting that the proposed motion was not based on any applicable legal right or theory and could not possibly succeed. Andrew Winton and Nik Holmberg represented the employer on the motion and in the litigation. The Court’s endorsement and a procedural supplementary endorsement can be found here: TCR Endorsement
