The small NewsBuzz article by Scene editor Barry Wells was the first mention of Elijah Elieff's lawsuit by any of London's media, despite Freedom Party's media releases about the lawsuit and Fp dinner event. As of this writing, the London Free Press, which was the sole source of any racial comment attributed to the former landlord, has yet to acknowledge his suit.

Eagle, United Church & legal clinic sued

By Barry Wells

FORMER CHEYENNE APARTMENTS owner Elijah Elieff has filed a $1.3 million lawsuit against Reverend Susan Eagle (a ward seven councillor), The United Church of Canada and Neighbourhood Legal Services Inc., alleging "conspiracy, abuse of process, interference with contractual relations, inducing breach of contract and unlawful interference with economic interests." The National Bank of Canada is also being sued for $400,000, seeking "damages for improvident sale" of the Cheyenne apartments. Eagle, a United Church minister, played an active role in the protracted human rights complaint against former landlord Mr Elieff. The August, 1994 human rights tribunal decision, largely exonerating Elieff, was later appealed to divisional court where Elieff represented himself and was found to have contravened the Ontario Human Rights Code.
