Lippy's back!

Hi Clare,

I'm sure you are already aware of this link but just in case you're not check it out and type Manitoba Metis Federation in the Name Search box. I wonder how many thousands of dollars have been wasted to date?

Hi Lippy,

Nice to hear from you again it's been a long time.

Yes, we're indeed familiar with Manitoba Justice's website. If you know the name(s) of parties in a lawsuit, or better yet the case file number, enter the information and you'll get a listing of all court documents filed by whom plus the dates. However, to read the contents you must visit the Provincial Law Courts Building (Winnipeg), pay a $5 fee and you'll be given the dossier. There's even a photocopying machine should you'd wish to make copies.
The one exception (rare) is when a Judge/Justice for whatever reason(s) decides to seal a file or certain documents it contains.

The media uses this approach all the time to find out what's happing with high profile lawsuits. The sworn affidavits entered into the record by plaintiff(s) and defendant(s) are there for the reading. Some of the information in divorce cases, for example, can be nothing short of phenomenal. Because it's in the public domain, anything obtained this way can be quoted verbatim in the mainstream media or posted on the internet.

And yes, the MMF has spent thousands and thousands and thousands of our taxpayers' hard earned money pursuing frivolous litigation. It's scary!

P.S. Now that you're getting good at this, here's your homework for tonight Lippy. Enter CI05-01-41955 in the File Number Search box and report back what you find.
