The following document has been posted. I was doing a bit of a commentary to connect a few of the dots – it’s taking longer than I thought so for now will simply post the document so that those who wish to do so can read it.
10 February 2015: Roman Catholic Episcopal Corporation for the Diocese of Sault Ste. Marie v. AXA Insurance (2015 ONSC 838) (The Sault Ste Maire Diocese is ordered “to produce for examination for discovery” Bishop Jean-Louis Plouffe to answer questions concerning Canon Law, the policies and practices of the Diocese and the operation and oversight of the Diocese. There is considerable and disturbing mention in the decision of facts related to one of the diocese’s infamous and recently deceased sexual predators, Father John Sullivan. The legal action however relates to 16 sexual claims against diocesan priests. The diocese was arguing that it is insured. AXA insurance was arguing that it is entitled in law to deny coverage on the basis of material misrepresentation, material non-disclosure and bad faith. The position taken by the defendant is that the policy is void ab initio.)
Enough for now,
