The Court of Appeal for Ontario has released its decision in the civil lawsuit between Morris Waxman and his brother Chester Waxman, along with related lawsuits and counter suits. The Court has found squarely for the plaintiff Morris Waxman and his son Michael and has dismissed the appeal of Chester Waxman, with a few minor variations. The Court agrees with the June 27, 2002 decision of Madame Justice Mary Anne Sanderson that Chester and his sons Robert, Warren and Gary cheated Morris and his sons of their half of the family business I. Waxman and Sons and various related businesses. The Appeal Court is even complimentary toward the work of Justice Sanderson who had to sort through many complicated issues in a tangled story.

The decision runs 160 pages long and took almost two years for the Appeal Court judges to determine. This is appropriate enough given that the original verdict ran 440 pages, and was the culmination of 14 years of civil litigation capped by a 200-day trial between warring factions of the country’s most prominent scrap-recycling family. The affair has been described as the longest civil action in Ontario history.
