The Supreme Court of British Columbia Canada has declared that Yorktown Ventures, Inc. has won court case #S024326 against Morrison Intermedia Inc. and Maryann Morrison.
In 2002, Yorktown Ventures was served with what it deemed a frivolous lawsuit. In subsequent court documents seeking to a obtain a financial settlement, the suit was filed by Morrison Intermedia Inc. and its principal, Maryann Morrison (a.k.a. Maryann Yeomans, a.k.a. Mary Ann Morrison, a.k.a. Mary Anne Morrison, a.k.a. Mary Anne Yeomans, a.k.a."Gamble Goddess", a.k.a."magyplay").
Yorktown Ventures' policy is to vigorously defend against frivolous lawsuits, and immediately retained counsel to do so.
Attorney Peter McGreevy of McGreevy & Henle LLP, was retained to represent the company within the United States and to strategize the overall handling of the case, frequently working with retained Canadian attorneys to counter the claims brought by the plaintiff.
To represent the company in Canada, the company hired the largest law firm in Vancouver, B.C. With over 100 lawyers, the company retained the firm of Bull, Housser & Tupper (BHT). Attorneys from BHT in Vancouver were Dan Bennett and Chris Wilson.
The plaintiff (Morrison Intermedia Inc. & Maryann Morrison) changed attorneys several times throughout the legal process. Representing the plaintiff at various points during the case period were Attorney Paul Mendes of Lesperance Mendes Lawyers, of Vancouver, BC; and Attorney Mark Underhill of Underhill Boies Parker , of Vancouver, BC. Some of the motion documentation provided by the plaintiff included the name of Baumgartel Gould, now known as Gould-Goodwin, of New Westminster B.C.
On February 5, 2010 the Supreme Court of British Columbia ruled that Yorktown Ventures, Inc. was the victor of the case. Yorktown Ventures, Inc. has also been awarded fiscal compensation by the courts of British Columbia by Master Tokarek. The company has initiated legal measures to collect from the plaintiff.
