King v. Polizeiprasisium Stuttgart, Germany, 2022 FC 646

Proth. Coughlan - 2022-05-03

Read full decision. Automatically generated summary:

The Defendants seek an order pursuant to Rule 221(1)(a) and (f) of the Federal Courts Rules striking out the Plaintiff’s Statement of Claim, without leave to amend on the basis that it does not disclose a cause of action or is otherwise frivolous and vexatious and an abuse of the Court’s process. ... In total, the Plaintiff seeks 750,000.00 Euros from the Stuttgart Court for failing to grant him judgment; another 250,000.00 Euros from each of the Stuttgart Court and the Stuttgart Police for copyright infringement. ... Based on that conclusion, I am satisfied that the Plaintiff’s claim against the two German Federal State Defendants is barred by s. 3 of the [State Immunity Act] and there are no exemptions that would otherwise displace the broad scope of that immunity. In the result, this Court has no jurisdiction to entertain the Plaintiff’s action.
