In the wake of a deer-airplane accident that cost millions of dollars in repair bills and lost business for David Fox, owner of Fox Flight in Toronto, Fox has hired a local lawyer, Jonathan J. Einhorn.

Einhorn said he is planning to sue the city, most likely in federal court.

“It’s not a game preserve. It’s an airport,” Einhorn said, “and if the city’s going to hold it open as an airport, they ought to make it reasonably safe for use as an airport.”

Tweed is now working with the Federal Aviation Administration to enclose the remaining unfenced sections of the airport perimeter.
