MONTREAL, Sept. 17 /CNW Telbec/ - In a lawsuit by Canadian corporation,
Pliska investments, alleging that their rights were abused by the Bank of
America, the claimants have obtained three orders from the Quebec Superior
Court, issued respectively on July 24, September 10 and September 15, 2008,
entitling them to question Kenneth D. Lewis, president and CEO of Bank of
Despite these three orders issued by the Superior Court, Mr. Lewis has
refused to appear at the examination that was to take place today. It would
have addressed negligence by the Bank of America that prevented an $18-million
real estate transaction.
Following Mr. Lewis's failure to appear, the claimants have no other
choice but to take steps to obtain a judgment in default allowing them to
recover the $18 million and associated interest.
