Trustee: Crowe Soberman



1631651 Ontario Inc. c.o.b. CZ (The Comfort Zone), which operated as a licensed restaurant/nightclub in the basement of the Waverly Hotel in Toronto, Ontario, filed an assignment in bankruptcy on September 1. The primary driver behind the company's insolvency were ongoing legal costs in connection with litigation between the company, as plaintiff, and the City of Toronto and former city councillor Adam Vaughan, as defendants. The litigation was commenced in 2009 and alleged that the defendants conspired to shut down the club, after a massive police raid in 2008 in which patrons were left lying on the floor in restraints, resulting in 33 being charged with a variety of offences. The company ceased its operations in late 2017. Crowe Soberman is the bankruptcy trustee.
