In a promising new development, the defendant University Health Network (UHN) has agreed to take part in settlement discussions with the representative plaintiffs. The discussions will take place in December 2013. Class members are currently being contacted for additional details in order to inform the talks. While there is no guarantee that the talks will be successful, this is a positive step in the right direction.
If a settlement is not reached in December 2013, continued examinations for discovery will be scheduled and Rochon Genova will continue efforts to obtain full documentary production from the defendant.
