Over the later course of the litigation, ECC, trustee Jones, later his executrix, Alice Jones 4 and Elizabeth Hendrick, Paul's wife, all were added as parties in the case.5 The Hendrick family feud not only expanded, but also spilled out of the courtroom into the everyday operations of the corporation, with ever-increasing animosity.

It’s called (The First Question) sponsored by Biliztik Sports, an interactive board game company.It’s a ton of work, but I’ve enjoyed talking with former players and authors about hockey, and getting to do it in a relaxed 40-minute format makes for some great storytelling.

He declared that the purchase agreement provided for the sale and purchase of only the original 1,858 shares held by Jeffrey on January 17, 1986, and not to the recapitalization shares and the stock gifts Jeffrey received after that agreement was executed.6 He ordered those 1,858 shares to be transferred, and severed Joyce's counter and crossclaims for later trial. Paul Hendrick has covered the Maple Leafs for 25 years. I wish you and Alicia all the best.

In June 1993, while Jeffrey was still alive but seriously ill, an attempt was made by ECC and the trustees, through counsel, to revise or amend the 1986 purchase agreement to include those new Class B shares in the purchase agreement, but Joyce, now acting as Jeffrey's “attorney-in-fact,” refused to allow the purchase agreement to be modified to include the new shares. “Such a [fiduciary] relationship is one of trust and confidence and imposes the duty on the fiduciary to act with the utmost good faith.” Point Trap Co. v. Manchester, 98 R.I. 49, 54, 199 A.2d 592, 596 (1964). Although it is well settled that leave to amend a defective pleading is committed to the sound discretion of the hearing justice, see Babbs v. John Hancock Mutual Life Insurance Co., 507 A.2d 1347, 1349 (R.I.1986), “we have consistently held that Rule 15(a) liberally permits amendment absent a showing of extreme prejudice.” Wachsberger v. Pepper, 583 A.2d 77, 78 (R.I.1990) (citing Inleasing Corp. v. Jessup, 475 A.2d 989, 993 (R.I.1984)). During this interview, I will be referring to myself as JR and to Paul Hendrick as PH.

Upon amendment, her counterclaims and crossclaims alleged common law breach of fiduciary duty on the part of the trustees and ECC by failing to act impartially in their attempts to coerce Joyce into modifying the stock purchase agreement to include all shares owned by Jeffrey at the time of his death; malicious prosecution and abuse of process 7 relating to the specific performance and declaratory-relief civil action filed by Paul against her; oppressive conduct by ECC toward her as a minority shareholder by its failure to declare stock dividends while granting excessive bonuses to its officers and directors, as well as the termination of her eighteen-year long-standing employment relationship with ECC and finally, denying her access to necessary ECC corporate books and records, in violation of § 7-1.1-46. Maple Leafs players past and present weighed in on social media to praise the man known as Henny. She also found herself thwarted in her attempts to gain sufficient access to review ECC's corporate books and records. Many Leafs, including Hyman and Matthews, sent him good luck messages.
