Chris Billings remains suspended by the Canadian Soccer Association until he requests a hearing from the Disciplinary Committee. Mr. Billings was suspended in September after he failed to attend a personal hearing. All other plaintiffs who were involved in recent court action will be required to attend disciplinary hearings.
A conclusion set forth of 18 November 2010 by Justice W.A. Tilleman noted,
[62] Those portions of the Statement of Claim in Action No. 1003-11662 concerning the internal disciplinary proceedings against and suspension of Mr. Billings are hereby stayed, pending the exhaustion of internal remedies, including appeals.
[63] I must now deal with the Board and the continuation of the two external managers. For, the latter, they are discharged effective today. Regarding the ‘Board’, the 9 a.m. meeting was a nullity because it was not called by the Board of the ASA and because accreditation and quorum requirements were not met. Additionally, the 1:00 meeting lacked quorum, meaning, those resulting decisions or actions taken or purported to be taken are also a nullity.
[64] In result, with the 9:00 a.m. (Billings) and 1:00 p.m. (Charpentier) meetings both being a nullity, I am vacating the actions or decisions of either ‘Board’ and issuing a declaration that the only Board of the ASA in effect, today, is the ASA Board constituted at the Annual General Meeting held on January 10, 2010. What that means is, with exception of the external managers’ assistance, the ASA Board from the date of 24 April 2010 to today’s date, was not legally capable of accomplishing anything.
