Weird case of the week

Dr. K. Ansarian Dentistry Professional Corp. v. Dr. A. Mohajeri Dentistry Professional Corp., Ontario Superior Court

Two dentists who shared a space "cannot stand each other" anymore and no longer want to work together. But their business arrangement stipulates they can only renew the lease on the common premises as the "tenant," which is both of their professional corporations together. One dentist refuses to do that, meaning they'll both be out if they can't work out a deal, while neither will let the other negotiate separately with the landlord to extend the lease. As a result, they've been engaging in legal wrangling resulting in stacks of paper up to a metre in height to find some way to avoid losing their place of business.
