Chris Rhone of Branch MacMaster successfully defended the BC SPCA in a claim by a cat-owner seeking the return of 70 cats taken from her custody by the SPCA’s special provincial constables. Ulmer v. BCSPCA (February 12, 2010).
On February 25, 2010, the B.C. Court of Appeal refused a stay of proceedings, which allows the SPCA to adopt the cats: Ulmer v BCSPCA (B.C. Court of Appeal). Click on the following hyperlink for the Vancouver Sun article on the case
