Class Action Against Canon Canada Inc.
Amended Statement of Claim
October 4, 2011
The offices of Juroviesky LLP would like to take this opportunity to update all interested parties as to the status of our Canon Class Action, Williams, et al. v. Canon Canada Inc., et al.
The Motion for Certification was heard, as scheduled, on September 12th, 2011 and all submissions concluded on September 14th, 2011. Counsel for both sides made oral submissions to the court in support of their respective positions and answered any questions the court had. The motion was open to the public. The Plaintiffs’ counsel sought to certify the action as a class proceeding on claims of breach of contract, breach of the Consumer Protection Act, breach of the Competition Act and waiver of tort. The Plaintiffs’ counsel also moved to amend the Statement of Claim, which was permitted by the court on the second day of the hearing. Accordingly, the updated Claim has been added to the website.
In addition to challenging both the Plaintiffs’ motions, the Defendants moved to strike certain expert evidence of the Plaintiffs, which was vigorously opposed by Plaintiffs’ counsel.
The Honourable Mr. Justice George Strathy of the Superior Court of Justice of Ontario, who presided over this motion, stated that he reserved judgment and would release his decision within approximately 90 days of the conclusion of the hearing. At the time our offices receive a written decision by the court, we will post it on our website by way of an update, as well as inform class members via email.
Note that we are continuing to accept registrations, sign-ups, and enquiries, as the matter is still ongoing. Please sign up if you have not done so already, and send us any and all questions you may have.
We thank you for your trust, patience and support.
