OTAWA -- Former Conservative cabinet minister Helena Guergis will live to sue another day after a judge refused to stay her defamation suit filed against a prominent MP, a top Ottawa lawyer, among others.

A lawyer for Heritage Minister Shelly Glover argued Thursday the suit should be dropped because Guergis has yet to pay a penny of costs awarded against her at earlier phases of the civil suit.

"The appropriate course of action is to actually enforce those orders," Robert Staley told the court.
