A third and final lawsuit against John Furlong has been dismissed.
A Prince Rupert resident alleged the former Vancouver Olympic CEO assaulted him while attending a Burns Lake school 40 years ago that Furlong taught at.
Daniel Morice failed to show up in court yesterday and a judge found he had been disrespectful towards the courts and Furlong’s lawyers.
Two other allegations of sexual assault during Furlong’s time in Burns Lake have either been dropped or dismissed in recent months.
Furlong says an almost unimaginable nightmare that he and his family have endured for years finally ended.
“Three civil cases that three first nations individuals launched by making false, horrible, hurtful and highly damaging allegations against me inflicting deep and lasting pain have either been abandoned by them or dismissed with cost by the B.C. Supreme Court,” he says.
Furlong also announced at a press conference today he is dropping a defamation suit against a reporter who first published the allegations.
