Decision

TRREB v. RE Stats Inc. Operating As Redatum et al., 2021 FC 30

Justice Southcott - 2021-01-08

Read full decision. Summary prepared by Alan Macek:

This Order and Reasons relate to a motion by the Plaintiff, seeking an interlocutory injunction against the Defendants, restraining them from carrying on certain activities alleged to infringe the Plaintiff’s copyright interests. As explained in greater detail below, this motion is dismissed, because the Plaintiff has not established that it would suffer irreparable harm if the injunction is not granted, and the balance of convenience in this matter favours the Defendants. ... However, to the extent that TRREB is concerned about attrition in its membership or other harm resulting from an impact on the integrity of the TRREB MLS system, there is no evidence that such harm has been identified over this two year period. In my view, these facts militate significantly against TRREB’s ability to establish irreparable harm. (Thanks to John Simpson for a copy of this decision)
