New court documents allege that the NHL would not pay Steve Moore $220,000 in disability entitlements unless he dropped his civil lawsuit against Todd Bertuzzi and the Vancouver Canucks organization.
Insurance companies determined in 2007 that Moore suffered career-ending injuries in the infamous Bertuzzi attack, entitling him to a Permanent Total Disability benefit of $220,000. A clause, however, stated that if Moore if he accepted the disability benefit, he would not be allowed to launch any further litigation against the NHL and its member hockey clubs. Moore instead chose to launch a civil suit, and is seeking $38 million dollars in damages from Bertuzzi, the Canucks and team owners. Tue, Feb 25, 2014 09:27:00 PM

Steve Moore has won an important ruling in Ontario Superior Court that will force Todd Bertuzzi, Marc Crawford and the Vancouver Canucks ownership to turn over their agreements amongst each other.

Bertuzzi punched Moore from behind on March 8, 2004 and landed on him, continuing to flail away at him, causing Moore to suffer two cracked vertebrae and a concussion. Moore never played in the NHL again and is suing Bertuzzi et al. in Ontario Court for damages as he and his family are asking for $38 million. Apparently Bertuzzi, then Vancouver coach Crawford and the Canucks ownership have agreements among themselves as to the proportional share of liability each side has with respect to Moore should Moore win his case or their is a settlement. This is big news and could force a quicker settlement as the agreements must be given to Moore's lawyer by Feb. 23. Stay tuned.

Steve Moore has filed a civil lawsuit against Todd Bertuzzi in Moore's home province of Ontario.

Moore's lawyer Tim Danson filed the lawsuit on Tuesday in Ontario Superior Court. The suit names Bertuzzi, Orca Bay Limited Partnership, Orca Bay Hockey Inc. and the Canucks as defendants. Moore, along with his parents, are seeking $15-million for loss of income, $2-million in punitive damages and $1-million in aggravated damages. Jack and Anna Moore, who are also named as part of the lawsuit, are seeking $1.5-million in damages. The timing of the lawsuit is strange with Todd Bertuzzi in Turin with the Canadian Olympic team, as Moore and his lawyers could have done it earlier or after the Olympics ended.

Steve Moore will be in a Denver court today to determine whether his civil lawsuit against Vancouver Canucks forward Todd Bertuzzi and others will be held in Denver, British Columbia or be dismissed.

If not dismissed, it could take its toll on Brad May, now a member of the Avalanche, and Todd Bertuzzi. Its hard to put these things out of your mind and Bertuzzi may have trouble on the ice until this matter is resolved.

Steve Moore is still hopeful that he can return to the NHL.

He still considers himself part of the Colorado Avalanche organization. He plans to go to Denver this month and work with the Avalanche medical staff. It's his dream to return to play hockey again in the NHL.

Steve Moore is expected to be cleared to play by doctors shortly.

If he wants to play to not, or if there are any team interested, are more questions. It throws the Todd Bertuzzi case wide open, as far as whether a future suspension will be handed down.

Steve Moore has commenced legal proceedings against Todd Bertuzzi, Brian Burke, Brad May and Marc Crawford in the State of Colorado for damages arising out his injuries after being blind-sided by Bertuzzi in a March 8th 2004 game.

Moore can also bring an action against the parties in British Columbia should perliminary matters in the U.S. lawsuit go in Bertuzzi's favor. This should be an interesting case to follow.

Steve Moore continues to be bothered by post-concussion symptoms.

His two cracked vertebrae have healed, but Moore is still suffering from headaches and dizziness that has kept him from skating. Todd Bertuzzi, who is resposible for Moore's injuries, remains suspended by the NHL and will stand trial on January 17th for assault causing bodily harm.

Steve Moore will miss the rest of the season due to neck fractures and a concussion.

Moore remains in hospital following Todd Bertuzzi's attack on the Avs' forward and his playing future may be in doubt right now. We hope that Moore is able to recover from his injuries and at the very least lead a normal life, hockey aside. Our wishes go out to him and his family.

Steve Moore left last night's game on a stretcher after being punched from behind by the Canucks' Todd Bertuzzi, reports TSN.

Moore suffered what could be a serious head injury as a result of Bertuzzi's actions. It is obvious that the Canuck winger was exacting some revenge for Moore's hit on Vancouver captain Markus Naslund, and as such, Bertuzzi could be facing a suspension of some considerable length. We will update you as to Moore's condition once more is known. If you have Bertuzzi on your fantasy team, don't count on him playing for a while.
