HALIFAX - Celebrity businessman and former Tory leadership hopeful Kevin O'Leary has been ordered to pay legal fees to a philanthropic organization that is suing him.

The decision handed down Wednesday by Nova Scotia Supreme Court Judge Mona Lynch also rejects O'Leary's attempt to dismiss the suit or move it to another jurisdiction.

The suit by the Nova Scotia branch of the Canadian Lebanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry alleges that O'Leary reneged on a promise to be keynote speaker at the group's gala event in Halifax on May 18, 2017.

The group says it had to seek out another speaker at a cost of more than $25,000, which the chamber is trying to recover in a broader suit against O'Leary, star of the ABC show "Shark Tank."

In the decision, Lynch awarded the chamber $3,500 in costs related to O'Leary's attempt to have it dismissed or stayed "in favour of a more appropriate forum."

Halifax lawyer Gavin Giles, who represents the chamber, was seeking $12,000 in costs.
