The final disposition of the Champion House pensions case was delayed again on Monday.

The case, which first entered the court system in 2008, includes charges covering a period spanning between January 1999 and August 2008. The defendant pleaded guilty in 2010 for failing with reasonable cause to contribute to a pension plan for an employee.

Champion House commenced payments according to an agreement with the court and plaintiffs, but the case came back after the pension plan administrator indicated no payments had been made since May 2014. The Crown counsel and defence attorneys are trying to ensure that they have the exact principal and interest agreed to before the case reaches its final disposition in court.

The case will be back in court on 9 Sept. to ascertain the progress made between the two sides, and Magistrate Valdis Foldats said he hoped to have the case finalised by late September or early October.
