TORONTO, Feb. 23, 2013 /CNW/ - The legal team that launched the
conflict-of-interest suit against Mayor Rob Ford announced on Friday
that it will be filing its response to Rob Ford's costs demands on
Monday, February 25. Following his successful appeal, Rob Ford has
asked the Court to order Mr. Magder to pay over $116,000 in Ford's
Clayton Ruby, the lead lawyer representing Mr. Magder, remarked, "Gosh,
that's a lot of money for a guy who got off on a technicality."
Ruby added: "Paul Magder is a private citizen who was performing his
civic duty and who did not stand to gain any financial benefit from
this lawsuit. He was acting on behalf of those many Torontonians who
were concerned about Rob Ford's reckless behaviour as mayor. Paul does
not deserve a costs award against him. He deserves an award for his
act of citizenship."
