Techno-Pieux Inc. v. Techno Piles Inc., 2022 FC 721
Justice Crampton - 2022-05-13
Read full decision. Automatically generated summary:
The Court is committed to reducing the time and costs associated with disputes it is called upon to adjudicate. To this end, two important procedural mechanisms that are available are: (i) a motion for summary judgment, and (ii) a motion for summary trial. Parties are well advised to carefully think about the relative merits of each. ... These reasons concern two Motions for summary judgment. They each relate to a dispute regarding trademarks and trade names. In the first Motion, the Plaintiff, Techno-Pieux, seeks a broad range of declaratory, injunctive and other relief against the Defendants. ... In the second Motion [the Cross-Motion], the Defendants seek an Order declaring that the trademarks asserted by Techno-Pieux are invalid and should therefore be expunged from the Register of Trademarks. ... In brief, they have failed to demonstrate that there is no genuine issue for trial in relation to the substantive relief they seek in their respective Motions. Accordingly, both Motions will be dismissed.
