Andrea Gorys Looks at Frivolous & Vexatious Liens With DCN


Andrea Gorys has been quoted in an article titled “Legal Notes: A Truly ‘Frivolous and Vexatious’ Lien,” published by the Daily Commercial News.

Writes John Bleasby: “A recent ruling from Ontario’s Superior Court of Justice confirms using a lien action as a tool for reprisal is a poor strategy.”

Says Andrea: “This is one of those rare cases where full indemnity costs were awarded based on the actions of the lien claimant. Lien claimants must be able to back up their liens with valid and supporting evidence. Otherwise, the liens can be challenged in a motion to discharge a lien.”

Andrea served as counsel for one of the defendants in this case.
