Gazette outs Billionaire Defendant
The Montreal Gazette continues to refer to the man being sued by a woman seeking to overturn the law that limits alimony to married people, as a Montreal billionaire. The judge imposed a ban on publication, but by revealing that the respondent is Montreal billionaire, The Gazette for all intents and purposes outed him. Other papers like the Globe and Mail, mentioned only that he was a multi-millionaire. According to Forbes magazine there are just four billionaires from Quebec. Since three of them are over 70 years old and married it doesn't take a genius to figure out who the mystery man is. At any rate, this trial has all the potential to turn into a real circus and before it's over I'm sure she'll have him jumping through hoops.
