Payne For The City

Here are the Court documents filed by Hilary Payne relating to the court case to quash the City by-laws preventing the tearing down of the homes in the Indian Road area and setting up the Sandwich Heritage District.

They are a good read when it's raining over the weekend.

Here is what the lawsuit is all about.

I assume that the Voice of Council will be cross-examined as part of this. Get your tickets for the big show soon.

Oh, in case you wondered, it's the same Hilary Payne:

  • "Windsor landlords sue city for $6M
    Suits include $2.25M sought by Windsor's former CAO

    Three sets of landlords who rent out student housing in the University of Windsor area are collectively suing the municipality for almost $6 million in what they allege was malicious prosecution by police, the fire marshal's office and other city officials.

    The list of plaintiffs include former city CAO Hilary Payne and his wife Gloria, whose individual claim seeks $2.25 million in damages "for loss of reputation, humiliation and disgrace, pain and suffering" over the way the pair alleges it was treated by officials following the January 2006 arson at a student rental house they owned at 614 Mill St., according to statement of claim.
