TORONTO, Aug. 19, 2016 /CNW/ - West Face Capital Inc. today issued the following statement after the Ontario Superior Court of Justice "dismissed in its entirety" a lawsuit by The Catalyst Capital Group Inc. for alleged misuse of confidential information:
"West Face is grateful for the vindication provided by the court's decision," said Greg Boland, Chief Executive Officer. "Justice Newbould reviewed the facts of the case carefully and thoroughly. He concluded that the Catalyst witnesses – including in particular Newton Glassman – lacked reliability and credibility. By contrast, he found that the testimony from Brandon Moyse and the West Face witnesses was truthful and helpful. The reasons for the complete dismissal of the case make clear that the lawsuit launched by Catalyst was without merit. We are confident that Catalyst's other lawsuits against West Face and various other parties face similar obstacles."
