Justice Walker - 2023-04-27
Read full decision. Summary prepared by Alan Macek:
This Order and Reasons addresses the costs and disbursements of this action payable to the Plaintiff/Defendant by Counterclaim, TLG, by the Defendant/Plaintiff by Counterclaim, Ontario Inc. ... I released my decision (see 2023 FC 310), granting judgment in favour of TLG and declaring the Registration invalid on the basis that Ontario Inc. had abandoned the TRAVEL LEADERS trademark as of February 14, 2017. ... For the reasons set out below, I am awarding TLG costs in the total amount of $454,741.95, composed of lump sum award for legal costs of $371,800.00, plus disbursements of $82,941.95. ... Considering all of the above, including the unsuccessful counterclaim, I find the circumstances of this proceeding support a lump sum costs award slightly below the low end of the 25% to 50% range.
