ONTARIO SUPERIOR COURT OF JUSTICE
40 Days for Life v Dietrich, et al.
Defendant, Brooke Dietrich, John Doe, Jane Doe and Persons Unknown
Plaintiff: 40 Days for Life
March 1, 2022
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE THAT THE ONTARIO, CANADA SUPERIOR COURT HAS GRANTED AN INTERIM INJUNCTION AGAINST BROOKE DIETRICH & PERSONS UNKNOWN
IN FAVOR OF 40 DAYS FOR LIFE
40 Days for Life has filed a legal action against Brooke Dietrich and those acting at her behest as a result of her campaign to sabotage 40 Days for Life by, among other things, filling Vigil calendars with no intent to participate, filling shopping cart(s) in the 40 Days for Life Store with no intent to purchase, publishing personally identifiable information about 40 Days for Life personnel, and encouraging others to do the same. This sabotage campaign has been largely waged on the social media platform TikTok and has garnered hundreds of thousands of “views.” Many campaigns in Canada and the US have been negatively affected by these acts.
As a result, 40 Days for Life engaged counsel in Canada and filed legal action to stop Ms. Dietrich and persons unknown from engaging in these activities.
As you can see from the ENDORSEMENT and DRAFT ORDER linked to below, we have prevailed at the preliminary stage, and the Court has Ordered that Ms. Dietrich cease and desist these activities:

c) publishing online the names, e–mail addresses, and other contact information of the Plaintiff’s employees, associates, volunteers, or participants in its activities, or encouraging third parties to contact same;
