In Bank of Nova Scotia Trust Company v. Iaboni, Justice Mullins held that claims asserted in a Notice of Objection filed in an application to pass account are statute-barred:
 The objections of Mr. C. Iaboni that the trustee ‘excluded’ many valuable assets such as a mortgage, two businesses, a condo and life insurance policy from the estate of Lidia Iaboni and that when Lidia Iaboni became disabled, her husband’s wealth evaporated and the applicant has no interest in marshalling this wealth is, in part, a complaint about the administration of Umberto Iaboni’s affairs, between the onset of his disability in 2006 and his death in 2010 and latterly a complaint about the administration of his mother’s affairs between the onset of her disability in 2006/2007 and before her death in 2012. His allegations in the Notice of Objection filed in his mother’s estate, as outlined above were in substance the same as those made in the litigation he initiated on December 15, 2010. All of the transactions about which he complains were disclosed to him no later than the accounting delivered on behalf of his siblings pursuant to the Minutes of Settlement, with the possible exception of the discharge of the mortgage on his sister’s home, which was a matter of public record. His civil action was dismissed on May 15, 2013.
This is noteworthy because it takes for granted that the Limitations Act applies to claims asserted in a Notice of Objection. Whether this is so remains the subject of debate. I’ve argued that the Limitations Act does apply, and so am pleased to see a decision that moves the law in that direction.
