Updated 2007 article, rbbm. Apotex founder hits hard in legal family feud Paul Waldie European Correspondent Published October 26, 2007 Updated April 26, 2018 "A feud between Apotex Inc. founder Barry Sherman and a group of relatives has heated up with allegations of a murder plot surfacing in court filings and attempts by Mr. Sherman to seize houses belonging to family members." "He has filed a lawsuit to recover $8-million in loans to one cousin, Kerry Winter, and alleged in court filings that Mr. Winter once suggested Mr. Sherman hatched a plot to murder his uncle. Mr. Winter has denied that". "Mr. Sherman has also appointed a receiver to seize four houses he helped Mr. Winter buy, including his family home in Toronto." "A fifth house in Vancouver belongs to Julia Winter, the wife of a cousin who died in 1995. According to allegations filed in court, Mr. Sherman has moved to revoke a $321,000 mortgage he holds on that house because Ms. Winter joined the others in the lawsuit." "Kerry Winter has alleged that Mr. Sherman is bullying the family and that he has gone back on a promise not to retaliate financially while the lawsuit over Toronto-based Apotex proceeded. "If he is permitted to continue, Mr. Sherman will cause me and my family irreparable harm," Mr. Winter said in an affidavit filed in court." "In the deposition, he said the family dispute arose around 2002. Mr. Winter accused him of being "involved in some conspiracy to murder their father and deprive them of their inheritance in the 1960s." Mr. Sherman said he was "totally flabbergasted at this untrue allegation."
