One seconds. British columbia. I have a question, but first
I have a question, but first a bit of backstory: Earlier this year someone has started a civil action against me in the BC Supreme Court. I have since hired a lawyer and submitted my response to this claim. My lawyer and I both believe that the plaintiff most likely holds a losing position in this case, and If this goes to trial the judge will most likely rule in my favour. Over the last few months the stress and uncertainty of this lawsuit has very adversely affected my life, the lives of my family members and my business in many different ways. It has affected my mental health, including causing me to have suicidal thoughts and making me resort to substance abuse. It has created a lot of lost revenue in my business and affected my physical health as well. My question has 2 parts: 1. if this matter goes to trial and the judge rules in my favour, will I have any legal basis to sue the plaintiff at a later date for the damages this lawsuit has done to my life and business? 2. If the plaintiff decides not to proceed further with this case (as I believe is very likely, given his position and his unjust and unproven claims), will I have reasonable legal basis to begin my own civil action against him for the damages mentioned above? Thanks a lot for your time. I really appreciate any advice in this matter. … read more
