Mr. James Clark, acting as counsel for trustee in bankruptcy, secures a formal Declaration voiding $334,841.00 in transactions which were deemed undervalued salvaging substantial asset.
The Honourable Justice Pattillo accepted his argument that the transfers were “intended to defraud or delay” a major creditor by falsifying its receivable and payables. See: In the Matter of the Bankruptcy of National Telecommunications Inc. 2018 ONSC 1101
This motion came on the heels of another successful Superior Court of Justice motion in which Mr. Clark was able to obtain a separate order for the payment of $159,330.00 on similar grounds. See the Honourable Justice Myers’ decision in Re: National Telecommunications Inc., a bankrupt, 2017 ONSC 1475.
