LOLG Defeats Motion For Stay And Removal Of Counsel

Back to all news

On October 19, 2017, the Superior Court dismissed a motion brought by the Province of Ontario and others to stay CourtCanada Ltd.’s $12,000,000 action for breach of contract, negligent misrepresentation and deceit shortly before the 40-day trial of the action was set to commence.

The Court agreed that, contrary to Ontario’s submissions, CourtCanada’s evidence was “uncontradicted” and that there was insufficient evidence to justify a stay or trial counsel’s removal from the record.

Matthew Gottlieb and Fahad Siddiqui successfully represented CourtCanada on the motion.
