Vancouver restaurant owner Duane McGaw has won an injunction in the Supreme Court of British Columbia against OffshoreAlert, the Florida publication that he says defamed him by calling him a Canadian con man. The injunction, handed down on Tuesday, Jan. 19, orders the site to refrain from printing statements that linked Mr. McGaw to an offshore investment fraud. It also orders the site's operator to pay damages in an amount that the court still must assess.
It is not clear if the order will have any practical effect, however. OffshoreAlert has almost entirely ignored the lawsuit. Its only response to the matter so far has been to put up a web page that it says will be a permanent entry detailing Mr. McGaw's actions. The site's operator, David Marchant, has also made it clear that he will not be complying with any demands from Mr. McGaw. "The information complained about will not be removed from our site and no apology will be forthcoming," reads an Aug. 10, 2015, comment.
