The City of Cornwall, through its legal counsel and insurance provider, has settled a Small Claims Court legal action initiated by Seaway Media Inc. (Cornwall Free News) regarding the removal of Mr. Jamie Gilcig from a City Council meeting in February 2013.
The plaintiff originally sought claims in the amount of $40,000. The City settled the matter without proceeding to trial when Seaway Media accepted a $3,000 settlement. In the interest of transparency and accountability, there is no confidentiality clause placed on the settlement.
“This three-year-old event has been an unfortunate distraction,” said Chief Administrative Officer Maureen Adams. “We are happy to put this matter behind us and move forward with the constructive and important business of the City.”
