Burnaby telematics firm wins appeal in Brazilian legal dispute

Last year, Crown had obtained a judgment against WebTech from a Brazilian lower court that had included a $60 million claim against the company.

WebTech appealed on the basis that due process was not followed in the case because it was not given the opportunity to present evidence or respond to Crown's accusations. "We are obviously pleased to have won this appeal," said Scott Edmonds, WebTech's CFO. "This decision allows us to focus without distraction on expanding our business presence in Brazil."

The legal issues with Crown began in 2007 when the telecom effectively stopped making payments on a loan agreement with WebTech. At the time, Crown was the sole Brazilian distributor of WebTech GPS-based fleet management systems.
