ONTARIO SUPERIOR COURT OF JUSTICE
(Toronto Small Claims Court)
Judgment at Trial
(c.o.b. White Distribution Ltd. Inc.)
An October 25 2010 Claim for $25 000
for defamation and intentional interference with economic relations.
Status: A Jan 13 2011 Court Endorsement provided an opportunity for the plaintiff to add material from this action to his Superior court action against Sinclair, on or before June 1 2011. He did not act. This action presumed dismissed as re-litigation of the Superior Court action against Sinclair was reactivated in Oct 2012 after White filed new materials which triggered a second settlement conference on Nov 7 2012. An Amended Defence was filed on October 3 2014. In 2015 the matter came to trial and the Plaintiff received a $25K Judgment in his favour. No witnesses testified for either side other than the plaintiff and defendant. The plaintiff was represented by Brian Shiller. The defendant was self represented. The issue of fake Morrisseau art was not in contention. The plaintiff’s claim was that he did not own the painting in question and Mr. Sinclair was unable to prove he did.
