Ex-Meadow Creek Cedar boss sues owner

The former operations manager of Meadow Creek Cedar is suing the company and owner Daljit (Dale) Kooner in small claims court.

The former operations manager of Meadow Creek Cedar is suing the company and owner Daljit (Dale) Kooner in small claims court.

Rowland McCulloch is seeking $3,100 to cover three unpaid invoices dating back to last fall, plus expenses, interest, and filing fees.

McCulloch filed his notice of claim on February 21, explaining the money was owed to his company, MB Log Hauling, for low-bedding equipment.

“In October and November 2011 I sent the invoices to Meadow Creek Cedar Ltd.,” he wrote.

“On the date of invoicing and late notices each month after, I contacted Daljit Kooner numerous times and he said he would pay them right away. The last time I contacted him I left a message on his phone with no reply or payment.”

Kooner did not respond to the notice of claim, so a default judgment was entered on March 15.

Kooner subsequently applied to have the judgment set aside and to be given more time to respond.

He said he had been in touch with McCulloch to settle the matter outside court, but couldn’t get ahold of him again before the judgment was entered.

The application was heard May 10 in Nelson court before Judge Ron Fabbro but was not granted. Instead, Kooner was ordered to pay costs of $50 to McCulloch within 10 days, or the application would be dismissed.

The case was adjourned to May 28.

Court records show more than 20 lawsuits have been filed against Meadow Creek Cedar since 2006, mostly by creditors, but all others have lain dormant since 2010.

McCulloch is still listed as an employee of Meadow Creek Cedar on the company’s website.
