On May 4, 2017, Mr. Justice Verhoeven granted an injunction prohibiting Francisco MacDugall, of Vancouver, doing business as SITA Accelerating Social Impact Technology and "www.sita.io", from commencing, prosecuting or defending proceedings in any court on behalf of others. The court also expanded an earlier injunction granted to prohibit MacDugall from engaging in the practice of law for or in the expectation of a fee, gain or reward. The court had previously enjoined MacDugall from holding himself out or representing himself as a lawyer or otherwise capable or qualified to practise law. The court found that MacDugall had offered various legal services to a start-up company and awarded costs to the Law Society in the amount of $2,000.
