Supreme Court of Canada - Flies in The Water Bottle

The Supreme Court of Canada heard argument today in the case of Wadda Mustapha, an Ontario man who sued a home drinking water supplier for damages, after finding dead flies at the bottom of a water bottle in his home.

Mr. Mustapha claimed damages for emotional distress, depression, phobia and anxiety.

A 2005 Ontario trial court's ruling that granted him damages of $341,775.00 was overturned by the Court of Appeal for Ontario in 2006.

The Plaintiff then appealed to the Supreme Court of Canada. A decision is expected in approximately six months.
