BCMA Lawsuit in the News AgainThe BC Medical Association lawsuit with former director and member of the Executive Dr Caroline Wang is back in the news again.

Dr Wang's lawsuit for libel and breach of contract will not be heard in court until January 2012. 

Meanwhile, the lawyer for the BCMA and defendants has filed an application in the Supreme Court of BC seeking an order that Caroline Wang post a security for court costs of $115,752.80 based on estimates of future court costs and the presumption they will win. 

The application acknowledges court costs to date are only $34,860.19.  These court costs are in addition to the legal costs incurred by each party.

The BCMA application also states, "this is an extraordinary ... case for the court to exercise its discretion" and "Wang's only significant eligible asset in BC appears to be a joint interest in a home in which ... she currently resides", suggesting she be required to further mortgage her home.

The courts have now deferred the date for this application to be heard in court until June 24, 2011.
