Lawyer Clayton Ruby says Mayor Rob Ford shouldnt get a penny out of Toronto resident Paul Magder.
Ruby, who represented Magder in the conflict of interest lawsuit that almost dumped Ford out of office, argued the case was not frivolous and that no costs should be awarded now that the mayor has won his appeal.
It would be an embarrassment to the administration of justice if a government official were awarded costs against an ordinary taxpayer in a public interest case that was brought in complete good faith, particularly when the statute demands that a taxpayer and only a taxpayer can bring this important public issue before the courts, Ruby argued Monday in his latest court filing.
Ford who won an appeal of his conflict of interest case last month is now asking Magder to cover the more than $116,000 in legal costs that he incurred
