“As you know the matter started today in court. Arguments were made for the application for permission to file the judicial review. I have made my initial submissions and the respondent, which is the commissioner, is in the process of responding. We now took a break today where they will continue to respond next week Thursday, which is the sixteenth at one-thirty and thereafter, I will have an opportunity to respond to them.”

“The court will decide whether or not the claim is one that is frivolous and vexatious or if it is one that has merits and decide whether it goes forward or is thrown out.”
