Domaines Pinnacle Inc. v. Beam Suntory Inc., 2015 FC 680
Justice Martineau - 2015-05-26
Read full decision. Automatically generated summary:
I venture to say that this is a good example of a situation where the application of the suppletive rules in the Civil Code of Québec, CQLR c C-1991 [CCQ] may have a determinative effect on the outcome of proceedings commenced in Quebec in the Federal Court. The issue today is whether the unconditional acceptance of a final offer to settle made under Rule 420 of the Federal Courts Rules, SORS/98-106 [Rules] put an end to this dispute in the Federal Court and constitutes a transaction that binds the offerors, who today refuse to discontinue their counterclaim.
Decision relates to:
- T-290-13 - DOMAINES PINNACLES INC. v. BEAM INC. ET AL
- A-272-15(2016 FCA 212) - which is an appeal from this decision
