Judge dismisses third Furlong lawsuit

A judge has dismissed a third sexual abuse lawsuit against former Vancouver Olympic CEO John Furlong.

The Prince Rupert man who launched the suit had planned to represent himself, but was a no-show in court as the trial got underway Monday.

Furlong lawyer Bill Smart told the court the case was made up of a series of lies.

B.C. Supreme Court judge Elliot Myers awarded special costs to Furlong, calling the plaintiff’s behaviour egregious and reprehensible.

The result ends a series of three civil court cases launched against Furlong related to his tenure at a Roman Catholic school in Burns Lake decades ago.

Another judge tossed a separate abuse claim by Grace West in February, while Beverly Abraham withdrew her lawsuit in December.

Furlong has strenuously denied all of the allegations and plans to issue a statement Tuesday morning.
