Celebrity businessman Kevin O’Leary and his wife are named in a multi-million-dollar wrongful death lawsuit by the family of Susanne Brito, one of two killed in a crash on Lake Joseph in Muskoka in August.
Linda O’Leary was charged with careless operation of a vessel in September.
If convicted she faces a maximum fine of $10,000.
The case returns to court November 21.
Brito’s parents and sister are also suing the operator of the other boat, Richard Ruh, who has been charged with not having his light on at the time of the late night crash.
”We sincerely hope that through this process, that justice is served and that steps are taken so that innocent victims like Suzie, are not seriously injured and killed and that other families do not have to go through such pain and loss,” Brito’s mother Rosa Ragone said in a statement.
