My recent cases
This was an appeal of a decision on a motion to strike certain portions of Bell Canada's Statement of Defence and Counterclaim. Initially the case management judge struck portions of Bell Canada's claims against our clients, the Plaintiffs/Defendants by Counterclaim and Aird & Berlis. That decision was appealed by Bell Canada. The Federal Court judge dismissed the appeal and determined that the case management judge was correct in dismissing certain claims against the Plaintiffs/Defendants by Counterclaim and Aird & Berlis including claims related to alleged misuse of copyright and unlawful means conspiracy.
Motion to strike portions of the Amended Statement of Defence and Counterclaim w.r.t. ss. 41.25 and 41.26 of the Copyright Act.
