Case Report – Costs award for “scandalous” pursuit of Anton Piller

12 Apr

On March 26th, the Saskatchewan Court of Queen’s Bench made a significant costs order against a group of plaintiffs for bringing an application for an Anton Piller order and resisting an order to set it aside, both in a manner it deemed to be “scandalous.” The order fully indemnified two separately represented groups of defendants for costs from the date of execution of the Anton Piller to the date of the hearing of the defendants’ motion to set aside. The Court discounted the costs it awarded to a third group of jointly-represented defendants because it held the costs actually incurred were excessive. For a summary of decision to set aside the Anton Piller, see here.
