On May 3, 2021, the applicant filed a statement of claim against the respondents, alleging that they had failed to deliver 90 per cent of their proceeds from the sale of shares. The respondents filed a statement of defence, denying all allegations in the statement of claim.

On August 4, 2021, the court ruled that the applicant was subject to Interim Court Access Restrictions until an application under s. 23 of the Judicature Act, R.S.A. 2000, c. J-2 could be brought in another matter involving the applicant. The applicant’s application requesting leave to continue his lawsuit against the respondents was dismissed. The applicant’s application for leave to appeal that decision was also dismissed.
