Update – November 22, 2013. Defendant requests particulars of special damages prior to filing its Statement of Defence in Ragoonanan group action

burningFollowing the Order of Justice Horkins dated October 18, 2011, allowing this action to continue as a traditional proceeding, the plaintiffs served their Statement of Claim on the defendant, Imperial Tobacco Canada Limited.

Since that time, the defendant has asked for particulars of the plaintiffs' special damages - that is, any income loss they suffered, any property they lost, and any out-of-pocket expenses they incurred.

Lawyers at Rochon Genova are currently working with the plaintiffs to gather evidence of their special damages. Once the documentation has been obtained, it will be provided to the defendants who will then be expected to file a Statement of Defence.
