May 10 Toronto John Damien was […]




May 10 Toronto John Damien was ordered by the Ontario government to pay $2,486 for the court costs of the Ontario Racing Commission, resulting from his suit against the OHRC, which he was forced to abandon in June 1976. The Ontario Racing Commission had not been a party to that suit, but had demanded to be included. Damien was obliged to pay the court costs, otherwise the Ontario Racing Commission could use its status as a creditor to block progress of Damien's outstanding suit against them.
