BL20-๐ŸŽ„CL8 – Gwendolyn Adrian (Kramer Simaan Dhillon LLP) Forgot To Wear The Flameproof Pantsuit.

Instead of getting scheduling approval for dates for two contempt motions for her two clients, she got handed a new one.

Adrian moves on me for CONTEMPT X 2 for each of her clients.

Her argument to Justice Myers for WHY she wanted a pair of contempt hearings is… wait for it!… “Lepp refused to provide an affidavit of documents... twice!”

The justice reacted “You want TWO contempt hearings for (a failure to provide ) an affidavit of documents?”

“That is the worst (“thing you can move for”) of the worst! CONTEMPT? For (refusing) an affidavit of documents?”

Paraphrasing J. Myers now….”I am ordering a case conference. It is obvious there is a lot more going on here.”

“Mr. Lepp, are you planning or offering to provide evidence? You know you can provide, in addition, oral evidence and you can examine the plaintiff and ask her questions, did you know that?”

Justice Myers paraphrased

I do NOW, I said quietly to myself.

“Yes, your honour I sent you 70 pages for today and I have bails more!”

So…Stand back! and stand by! for his order. He may add in something about how much time and how much exchange of evidence there will be.

Or maybe that is TO MUCH to ask for.

Lastly, he ended with…

“It does not make sense to waste a lot of time on SOMETHING WHICH IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!”

J. Myers paraphrased from memory

In the end, judges “get it”… been there, done that!

They see through the bullshit and act.

Thanks to the Toronto Superior Court!

Until now the Newmarket crowd has not been so helpful. Maybe I should be GLAD she filed in the wrong court!
