In AG v $104,877 US, 2013 ONSC 2955, just released, Justice Perell allowed monies to be released from funds seized and preserved under the civil remedies legislation to allow civil counsel to be retained. Civil counsel (not myself) will now be retained to dispute the seizure.
Apparently this is the first time monies have been released in this way. The decision is careful and sets out the necessary standard. I expect it will be released on line soon but I have a copy now for anyone who needs it.
