TORONTO — A $6-million libel lawsuit against Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has been dismissed.
In a decision from Justice John Macdonald released Thursday, the judge said lawyers for Boardwalk Cafe owner George Foulidis failed to prove that comments Ford made alleging corruption damaged Foulidis's reputation.
Macdonald said Foulidis's lawyers failed to prove the words Ford spoke during a Toronto Sun editorial board meeting referred to the businessman and were defamatory.
