Patty Murray Quoted in Law Times
Hicks Morley’s Patty Murray was quoted in the January 5th, 2015 edition of Law Times magazine in an article about Ormesher v. Schwartz Law LLP entitled “HRTO applies Penner in letting case proceed despite earlier LSUC dismissal“. In this article, Patty explains that the HRTO has become less and less likely over time to grant s. 45.1 motions for dismissal in cases involving parallel proceedings at regulatory or disciplinary bodies for professionals such as lawyers, dentists, doctors or police officers: “In the old days, there is no question in my mind that the respondent here would have been successful in seeking a dismissal. For years, the Tribunal was routinely tossing out applications. The message was: You’re out of luck”.
