The Malik Report

Red Wings forward Todd Bertuzzi’s legal issues remain part of his baggage, so, per the CBC’s Michael Drapak...
Lawyers for Todd Bertuzzi and Orca Bay, the company that owns the Vancouver Canucks, have lost an appeal to keep secret the details of an agreement that shares costs between them should they lose a $38 million lawsuit brought against them by Steve Moore.
Moore’s lawyer, Tim Danson, learned of the agreement earlier this year and won a decision to have it released to him, but not for public disclosure.
Justice Paul Perell, of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, upheld that decision, writing “since the structure of the settlement agreement has already been disclosed, the non-disclosure of the details of the proportional sharing is more harmful than the complete disclosure”.
Continued, and as I keep saying, I with that Moore’s lawyer, Tim Danson, would cut this, “Let’s sue everyone for half a billion dollars!” strategy and instead take a significant chunk of Bertuzzi’s career earnings, a significant settlement from the league and Canucks and simply let Steve Moore move on with his life. Moore’s a brilliant, articulate and thoughtful young man and he’s been forced to remain a victim for the better part of a decade, and he deserves to get his paycheck and no longer have to live as, “The guy whose neck Bertuzzi broke.”
And in seriously bizarre legal news, i’m not even touching the Free Press’s story about the gentleman who mailed body parts to Canadian political party offices being a Fedorov fan. That’s just f***ed up...
Update #2: the Canadian Press has more if you’re interested.
