The fight over the direction of Canadian biotechnology firm Bioniche Life Sciences Inc. is heading to court, after the company refused for a second time to call a special meeting requested by a dissident shareholder group.

The shareholders, led by former Biovail chief executive officer Bill Wells, say they will ask an Ontario court to force a meeting where they will present an alternative slate of directors.
