Western Tank & Lining Ltd. v. Skrobutan et al, 2006 MBQB 205 (CanLII)

  • September 14, 2006

Date: 2006-09-14 Scurfield J. | Link

Evidence that the defendants attempted to destroy evidence of their pre-resignation activities by erasing information from their computers attracted an adverse inference that they were probably involved in the direct solicitation of the plaintiff's customers before leaving the employment of the plaintiff. The court also took the spoliation into account to impose more rigorous injunction prohibitions than it would have normally. (paras 20-23)
