December 9, 2013 § Leave a comment
December 9, 2013, The hearing which took place on December 4, 2013 and which took approximately (3) hours, the bulk of which AG- Canada spoke, was presided over by The Honourable Wendy M. Matheson. As soon as we are informed of the decision by the class administrator, we will provide their update here.
NO USA-Placed Victim-Survivor of Canadian Scoops is represented within this Ontario class action that counts 16,000 expected claimants; USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops require a separate class action. There are at least a couple of thousand USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops in USA (and a not-yet-calculable number in west Europe).
December 9, 2013, Once we receive a complete update on hearing that began December 4, 2013, (see post below) we will post an update.
November 28, 2013, On Wednesday, December 4, 2013 at Osgoode Hall, 130 Queen Street West, 10am, hearing will take place to decide whether or not permission should be granted to Canada to appeal the September 27, 2013, decision of the Honourable Justice Edward Belobaba of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice; within that decision he certified the 60’s Scoop case of cultural genocide as a class action under Ontario’s Class Proceedings Act. The judge rejected the argument of the Attorney General of Canada that what happened is not worthy of a legal-wrong case.
The September 27, 2013 decision was 2nd time a judge of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice has accepted the case as one that should go forward, that does plead a proper legal wrong, and a case that ought to proceed as a class action. The first judge was the Honourable Justice Perell who made His decision on May 26, 2010.
