June 12, 2020 – Jean-Pierre Sheppard and Lauren Flam, of our Commercial Litigation Department, obtained an interim injunction yesterday to force a defendant who was defaming a company to cease and desist. The Court held that the unfounded accusations of financial impropriety and alleged product quality problems were being circulated in bad faith with the purpose of causing harm to the company.
Defendant was ordered to immediately cease initiating any contact with the company’s customers, suppliers and its other business partners.
The “hearing” took place in “court” by means of a linkup to newly installed technology at the Montreal courthouse. RSS lawyers presented their case to the judge from our offices at Place Victoria.
