Voltage v. Doe Returns to Federal Court for Teksavvy Costs Motion
The Federal Court has heard Teksavvy's motion for "all reasonable legal costs, administrative costs and disbursements" arising from voltage's order that Teksavvy disclose the identies of those of its subscribers whose IP addresses Voltages alleges that it has identified downloading copyright materials. The motion springs from Prothonotary Aalto's February 20, 2014, decision granting Voltage a Norwich order compelling Teksavvy to provide requested subscriber information provided that certain conditions and safeguards were met. One of those conditions involved Voltage's payment of Teksavvy's "reasonable legal costs, administrative costs and disbursements". Teksavvy has submitted a bill of costs in the amount of $346,480.68. voltage opposes the amount as "outrageous".
