JUDGE ORDERS RELEASE OF MLG RECORDS TO STAVRO FOES
Published October 13, 1994
A judge has ordered the release of files from Miller Thomson, the former law firm for the estate of Harold Ballard and Maple Leaf Gardens Ltd. (MLG) to two Ontario agencies that "want to unwind the recent takeover of the hockey franchise." But the agencies and the estate still need to decide what files "must be released" from the firm. MLG fired Miller Thomson in late '90 and the firm "resigned from the estate a few months later, after executors had rejected their advice. Stavro, executor of Ballard's estate is being accused by Ontario's Public Trustee of breaching the estate's fiduciary duties by selling himself a "key Gardens block." Miller Thomson had advised Stavro "not to proceed" with the special option to buy into MLG without court approval (Tony Van Alphen, TORONTO STAR, 10/13).
