Actions involving receiver

Action against court appointed receiver was stayed

Order was made staying action as against court appointed receiver and refusing leave to sue receiver. Plaintiff appealed. Appeal dismissed. Submission that motion judge erred in failing to find that receiver had already consented to action being commenced against it was rejected. No basis was seen to interfere with motion judge’s refusal to grant leave to sue receiver. This was discretionary decision. Motion judge found that there was no evidence tendered that plaintiff suffered damages and, having assessed record before her, she declined to draw such inference. No error was seen in her conclusion. It was reasonably based on evidence or lack of evidence placed before her on motion.
