The parties have reached a settlement with Coast Capital. Although Coast Capital denies liability, it has agreed to pay $1.4 million (the “Settlement Funds”) to settle the claim against it in exchange for a full release of claims. The Representative Plaintiff, Class Counsel, and the Coast Capital believe that this is a fair settlement, taking into account all the strengths, weaknesses, and risks of the case.
The hearing is scheduled for September 22, 2022, at 10:00am before Justice Masuhara of the Supreme Court of British Columbia. The hearing will take place at Vancouver Courthouse, located at 800 Smithe Street, Vancouver, BC.
