Doubleview Provides Clarification of recent Supreme Court Ruling
Doubleview Capital Corp. (“Doubleview”) ([TSX-V: DBV], [OTC: DBLVF], [GER: 1D4]) is pleased to provide details of the recent Supreme Court of British Columbia decision regarding its application to obtain a pretrial injunction to stop Day, et al. (the “Defendants”) from interfering with Doubleview’s Hat Project drill program and announces that Doubleview is, as permitted by the Court, filing a renewed Notice of Application. Doubleview’s litigation is the result of actions in July, 2015 by defendants that caused suspension of drilling on the Hat Property.
Doubleview established a strong arguable case for inducement of breach of contract and conspiracy by the Defendants (Chad Norman Day, et. al.), and that their element of unlawful conduct could knowingly result in injury to Doubleview. The Court granted Doubleview leave to re-apply for a narrower based injunction that is reflective of the inducement of breach of contract and conspiracy claims but dismissed the broader injunction application against the Defendants.
The Court also sought clarification on the matter of whether or not recommendations for further archaeological studies, from Baseline Archaeological Services (“Baseline”), applied to Doubleview’s current drilling program. Doubleview’s new application for a narrower injunction includes an affidavit from Baseline’s archaeologist that confirms that the recommendations do not apply to the current permitted area of Doubleview’s drilling program where archaeological potential is judged to be low.
Doubleview feels strongly that its current application meets the Court’s requirements. The Court’s denial of a pretrial injunction, contrary to information given in a recent Tahltan Central Government news release, does not dismiss Doubleview’s ongoing litigation to obtain a permanent injunction and damages. The Court acknowledged that the defendants “…could be expected to know that injury to Doubleview was likely to result”. Litigation is proceeding.
