Ice cream shop vs. Olympics
Nov 11, 2012 / 4:41 pm
A Vancouver ice cream shop owner has settled out of court with organizers of the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver.
Mario's Gelati filed a lawsuit against the Vancouver organizing committee, the city and the federal and provincial governments seeking more than $2.5 million for lost business due to construction of the Athletes Village near his business.
VANOC staff initially promised roadwork outside the shop would only take a few weeks but it dragged on for more than seven months.
The case was slated to go to court this month, but a settlement was reached in September.
Details of the settlement are guarded by a confidentiality agreement.
Coast Range Heliskiing of Pemberton, B.C., also launched a lawsuit claiming Olympic security screening and no-fly zones over Whistler made it impossible to do business. (CKNW-The Canadian Press)
