Jordan Dunlop was successful in defending a fast food chain restaurant in a lawsuit brought by a plaintiff who claimed she injured her tooth when she bit into metal debris found in a pita. Although the plaintiff was treated for a chipped tooth following the alleged incident, the jury found that the restaurant was not liable.
David Zuber and Crystal Gillis were recently successful in appealing a Master’s decision to award the defendants a further defence medical with a new orthopedic expert. The Appeal judge found that there was no evidentiary basis to support the Master’s findings of fact, such that there was a palpable and overriding error.
At the conclusion of trial conducted by Joseph Villeneuve and Agatha Dix for the defendants, with jury verdict given, the plaintiff moved for Judgment for $2,000 as the sole amount to be paid by the defendants net of deductible for general damages which reduced that award to zero, and reduction of special damages for collateral benefits received. The defendants opposed the motion on the basis that the net amount must be zero with the $2,000 reduced by deductibility of housekeeping benefits received by the plaintiff via statutory accident benefits. The defendants further argued their entitlement to costs as based on net award of zero, while the plaintiff argued entitlement to her costs based on net award of $2,000. The defendants as represented by Jonathan Schwartzman and Agatha Dix, were successful on the deductibility issue thereby resulting in a Judgment dismissing the action, with costs ordered payable to the defendants in the amount of $138,416.42.
