Case Update – January 28, 2014

Justice Edward Belobaba of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice has been appointed to manage this proposed class action.

Earlier today, Lax O’Sullivan Lisus Gottlieb LLP lawyers Eric Hoaken, Ian Matthews and Lauren Epstein attended the first case conference in this matter with Justice Belobaba, along with the lawyers for Canada Cartage and Direct Distribution. The parties agreed that the motion for certification of this action as a class action – the next major step in this proceeding – will be argued December 10-12, 2014, in Toronto. In the meantime, we will begin to prepare our materials and gather evidence in preparation for the motion for certification. These materials will be posted as they become available.

In the weeks ahead, we will continue to reach out to the many employees who have contacted us to continue to learn about Canada Cartage’s overtime practices. We are grateful for your continued interest in this case.
