Case Report – Party pays for executing Anton Piller at the wrong address

On October 27th, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice ordered a party to pay $15,000 in damages for trespass plus costs on a full indemnity basis for misidentifying its intended target and seizing documents from the wrong target’s residence based on what the Court held to be an inadequate investigation.  The order was made on a motion brought by the subject of the Anton Piller, who waived any claim to mental distress damages so he could have an immediate remedy.
