Critic of Marineland says order to cover court costs a victory


Phil Demers calls it a "big win."

Marineland has been ordered to pay some of the court costs incurred by its former employee.

He is being sued by the theme park for $1.5 million dollars.

Marineland must pay more than $12,000 of Demers'  $20,000 in legal costs.

Demers says courts generally award a smaller percentage of costs.

Marineland launched a lawsuit against Demers in 2013 alleging he trespassed on the property and threatened some of their employees.

Demers is also suing Marineland for defamation and abuse of process.
