Rich and Bankrupt

On May 19 2021 the Honourable Sean F. Dolphy, Judge of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice upheld an earlier decision by a Registrar of the Superior Court of Justice in Bankruptcy that a debt that is statute-barred by Ontario’s Limitations Act, 2002 (meaning that the two year time limit for a creditor to sue a debtor for an outstanding account expired) cannot be proven, or claimed, by a creditor against a debtor in bankruptcy either because the collection of debt can no longer be enforced through a legal proceeding.
