The Ontario Superior Court denied a request by wireless providers for more detailed information from the Competition Bureau related to its lawsuit on rich text messaging. Last September, the Competition Bureau launched lawsuit against BCE Inc., Rogers Communications Inc., Telus Corp., and the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association (CWTA), seeking a total of $31 million for their role in alleged misleading advertising that promoted premium texting and rich content services for mobile devices. The wireless providers had asked the court to provide more detail about the advertisements under complaint, and the court denied the request. “While I accept the foregoing submissions in general terms, in a proceeding such as this which is focused on allegedly widespread and numerous false or misleading representations to the public, possibly numbering in the hundreds or more, the 'full particulars' required need not include the details of each and every misrepresentation,” Justice Charles T. Hackland said in a decision dated June 12. “Instead what is required is a full description of the alleged deceptive marketing practice. The details of each representation are more properly characterized as evidence,” Hackland said.
