Conflict of Interest Case Continues

You may recall that eleven citizens, including me, filed an action against Clrs. Meggs and Jang claiming a serious conflict of interest in the Heather Place decision.  The defendants were due to issue their response by yesterday.

At the very last minute, we received a message from the lawyers they have hired — Farris Vaughan Wills & Murphy, among the most expensive lawyers in town, I’m told — asking for six days grace.  So we wait until 10th July to see what they have to say.

I’m going to guess that the hiring of Farris indicates they recognize we have a case they have to worry about.

  1. And it gets better–and Joe will be tickled to see us highlight this–they’ve hired probably the most experienced litigator in BC: Joe Arvvay, Q.C. Yes, they’ve hired one among the top lawyers in the biggest litigation firm in BC, and at taxpayer expense I might add.

    “There is no basis in this complaint. We did nothing wrong.”

    Then why hire the most expensive lawyer in town to defend a baseless lawsuit?

    $591, 656
    Amount paid to Farris Vaughan Wills & Murphy by the city of Vancouver in 2013. Of course there are no details as to what that was for.
