Class action authorized by the Superior Court of Quebec on November 14, 2018. On January 8, 2020, the parties executed the Settlement Agreement (accessible in PDF format by clicking below).
On January 27, 2020, the Court approved the notice program and scheduled the hearing for settlement approval for June 18, 2020. The global health pandemic resulting from the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) necessitated suspension of the notice program previously approved by the Court. On March 18, 2020, the parties asked the Court to suspend the notice program in order to take COVID-19 into account. As a result, the initial settlement approval hearing was postponed.
