Boyd v. Cooper  O.J. No. 1415 (S.C.J.)
Date of Decision: March 29, 2005
We successfully defended a motion seeking leave to appeal a judge’s decision granting our insurance client standing in an action as an interesting party pursuant to Rule 13. The insurer had denied coverage to its insured on the basis that the claim brought against it fell within an exclusion of the policy. Our client sought to be added as an interested party after the insured refused to plead a statutory bar defence. Justice Salmers granted the motion adding the insurer. Justice Howden agreed that the insurer was in fact an interested party and that Justice Salmers was correct in granting the relief.
