Two former Torys LLP partners exonerated of professional misconduct accusations are suing the Law Society of Upper Canada for $22 million.
Dorothy DeMerchant and Darren Sukonick have brought a lawsuit against the provincial regulator for negligent investigation and malicious prosecution after the two former lawyers successfully fought allegations they had acted in a conflict of interest when representing Conrad Black’s Hollinger group of companies in the sale of its CanWest Global newspaper assets.
The two former partners, who have both since left the profession, have also claimed misfeasance in public office, abuse of process and libel.
