My spies tell me that Maddie Di Muccio’s ludicrous libel action against regional councillor John Taylor will be back in Newmarket’s Small Claims Court at 3pm on Thursday 3 March 2016.
Instead of setting a date for a full trial, the Court has ordered a “Mandatory Settlement Conference”. This suggests to me that Di Muccio’s absurd and totally contrived action against Taylor will be thrown out as having no merit whatsoever. And not before time.
The fragile and excitable Di Muccio, a former Newmarket councillor and now President of the York Region Taxpayers Coalition, is claiming damages of $5,000 from Taylor on the grounds he allegedly said things about her that made her an object of ridicule.
