DL POLLOCK PROFESSIONAL CORPORATION v BLICHARZ, 2019 ABCA 203
Veldhuis, STrekaf AND Hughes JjA
14.92: Authority of the Registrar
The Respondent, a law firm, represented the Appellant in a personal injury matter, and later obtained a substantial award against the Appellant for unpaid legal fees and disbursements, and had attempted to enforce the award. The Appellant opposed the Respondent’s enforcement efforts, and after several unmeritorious Appeals were launched, the Court of Appeal imposed filing restrictions on the Appellant.
This particular Appeal was brought forward by the Case Management Officer as one that could be summarily determined by a Panel, pursuant to Rule 14.92(e). The Court reviewed the background facts and held that it was moot and had no merit. As such, the Court summarily dismissed the Appeal pursuant to Rule 14.92(e), and also affirmed the filing restrictions that had previously been imposed.View CanLII Details
