The highest court in Ontario has upheld a legal victory for the Toronto mayor against a restaurant owner, who’d sued for defamation.

George Foulidis had sued over comments Rob Ford made when he was a city councillor, suggesting an untendered, 20-year leasing deal between Tuggs Inc, Foulidis’s company and the city was corrupt.

Ford added it ”stinks to high heaven.”

A lower court dismissed the lawsuit in late 2012.

Foulidis appealed but the Court of Appeal threw it out in a just released ruling.

The court arguing Foulidis was not the target of Ford’s remarks, nor were the words abusive or insulting.
