Read full decision. Automatically generated summary:
This order concerns the costs and disbursements payable to MEG Energy Corp [MEG] by Jason Swist and Crude Solutions Ltd [collectively Swist] as a result of this Court’s judgment in Swist v MEG Energy Corp, 2021 FC 10 [Swist]. ... For the reasons that follow, MEG’s costs are assessed in accordance with the high end of Column V of Tariff B, for a total of $521,932.93 inclusive of all fees and disbursements. ... An important consideration in this case is that the Plaintiffs are not sophisticated commercial entities comparable to the parties in Nova. An award of costs should not function to make patent litigation inaccessible to the individual inventor (see Betser-Zilevitch at para 7; Air Canada v Thibodeau, 2007 FCA 115 at para 21).
