Read full decision. Automatically generated summary:

Wael Maged Badawy appeals from a decision of the Federal Court (2017 FC 619, per Manson J.) granting the respondents’ motion for summary judgment in respect of Mr. Badawy’s action against them, and dismissing the motion seeking judgment against Mr. Badawy in respect of the respondents’ amended Counterclaim. As there was no cross-appeal in this matter, the only issue before us is the Federal Court’s decision in respect of Mr. Badawy’s action. The Federal Court found that the said action properly raised only one specific issue, that is whether the respondents were liable for passing-off in contravention of subsection 7(b) of the Trade-marks Act, R.S.C. 1985, c. T-13 (the Act) for using “Igras Family Law” in association with Mr. Igras’s family law practice (including mediation and arbitration) in Calgary, Alberta. ... I would therefore dismiss the appeal with costs set at an amount of $1,500.00, including disbursements and taxes.

Decision relates to:

  • A-239-17 - WAEL MAGED BADAWY v. MINISTER OF JUSTICE ET AL. which is an appeal from a decision dated 2017-06-23 in T-1289-14
