The following are excerpts from a 2012 Ontario judge’s reasons for decision involving debtor fraud:

“[Debtor’s principal] was actively involved with [debtor corp.] and [debtor’s wife] in extracting payments from [creditor], which he knew or should have known they were not required to make.”

“The actions of [debtor], in cooperating with [principal debtor], regarding the deceit relating to the existence of [bankrupt company] and directing royalty payments into its account, which were tantamount to fraud… repayment of the royalty payments wrongly received by the plaintiff is required if justice is to be done.”
