Examinations for Discovery

Class Counsel (the lawyers representing the passengers) have now conducted extensive examinations for discovery of representatives of the defendants. For those unfamiliar with the Canadian legal system, examinations for discovery are the process by which counsel question a representative of each defendant under oath prior to trial in order to obtain information regarding the events surrounding the accident of August 2, 2005 and also to obtain admissions which can be used to prove liability against the defendant at trial.

In addition, counsel for Nav Canada has conducted eight days of examinations for discovery of representatives of Air France.

Duty to confidentiality issues, Class Counsel cannot comment on the evidence obtained during the discovery process on this website.
