    In the Matter of Steven James Regoci (“Regoci”) and David Stanley Chernoff (“Chernoff”) (April 21, 2004) Decision 2004-003

    Facts - On July 16, 2003, TSX Venture Exchange Inc. (TSXV”) released a Notice of Hearing which named Regoci and Chernoff.  The purpose of the hearing was to determine whether Chernoff and Regoci contravened Vancouver Stock Exchange Rules (“VSE”) and Alberta Stock Exchange (“ASE”) By-Laws.  During the relevant period, both Regoci and Chernoff were within the jurisdiction of the VSE and ASE.  The jurisdictions of those bodies was assumed, effective November 29, 1999, by the Canadian Venture Exchange Inc. (now TSXV).  After a pre-hearing conference and prior to the hearing date, the TSX withdrew its Notice of Hearing and took the position that the subject matter of the allegations would be referred to the British Columbia Securities Commission.  Counsel for Chernoff objected, asserting that the TSXV could not unilaterally withdraw the Notice of hearing and that the panel should instead dismiss the matter.

    Held – Subject to specific circumstances, which are satisfied in this matter, the TSXV has the authority to unilaterally withdraw a Notice of Hearing.
