Squeezing blood from a rock!

Tansi/Good Day Readers:

Reviewing the documents recently listed to date on the Manitoba Justice online File Registry in the MMF's lawsuit against, we noted a truly amazing 125th entry (The vast preponderance placed there by Murray Trachtenberg!) dated May 20, 2008

He was able to get an order against co-defendant Terry Belhumeur to pay court costs in the amount of $673.50 inclusive of disbursements and tax. You may recall on April 28, 2008 Counselor Trachtenberg filed a Motion trying to get a default judgment against Mr. Belhumeur for not attending an Examination for Discovery plus failing to provide documentation he had requested. Master A.W. Sharp who presided at the Hearing gave the defendant two weeks to submit the material.

What we can't tell from the online entry is whether Counselor Trachtenberg was able to knock Terry Belhumeur out of the case (i.e. get a default judgment) although we doubt it.

Mr. Belhumeur will only have to pay this cost should the case goes to trial and he loses. But you really have to wonder. If you've been reading the transcript from Terry Belhumeur's January 28, 2008 Examination of Discovery ("$The Murraygate Tapes$ - Episode 3!" - May 19, 2008), the co-defendant clearly states he's unemployed.
