Joe Chan leaves the Law Courts Building last month after attending the conflict of interest court case.

A conflict-of-interest case against Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz is not over yet.

Local restaurant owner Joe Chan has filed an appeal of his motion against Katz, which was thrown out of court last month. Chan previously vowed to fight the decision and had until this week to formally file the paperwork, which he has done. No date for a hearing before the Court of Appeal has been set.

A loss could prove costly for Chan, who has already been ordered to pay $10,000 of the mayor's legal fees stemming from his failed bid to have him removed.

Queen's Bench Justice Brenda Keyser ruled the Manitoba Municipal Conflict of Interest Act didn't apply to a disputed Christmas party that was the focus of the hearing.

The December 2010 bash was held at Hu's Asian Bistro on Ellice Avenue. It was hosted by Katz's office and involved city councillors and department heads. The bill for the event, paid for with taxpayer funds, was $3,084.35. The mayor owned the restaurant at the time.
