Hearings Scheduled for Lytton Fire Class Action

Hearing dates have been set for two important steps in the Lytton Fire class action. Since the lawsuit was filed by CFM Lawyers and Gratl & Company in August 2021, an overlapping claim was filed by a different legal team. A full-day hearing before Chief Justice Hinkson of the BC Supreme Court has now been set for January 12, 2022, to determine which of the two proposed lawsuits should go forward.

Meanwhile, the team from CFM Lawyers and Gratl & Company is working on the next phase of the lawsuit—certifying the claim as a class action. The certification application is an early step in every class action, in which the plaintiff asks the court to allow the case to proceed as a class action. While certification is not a judgement on the merits of the case, it is a crucial step toward resolution of the case. As such, it is typically fiercely contested by defendants and requires the plaintiff to present legal arguments and evidence from witnesses and experts.

The certification hearing is set for five days at the BC Supreme Court: October 17-21, 2022.

For more information, including about attending the hearings, please contact Mallory Hogan ([email protected]) or Faye Panis Nicolas ([email protected]).

Revolution Resource Recovery Inc. Class Action Certification

On October 22, 2021 the BC Court certified a class proceeding against the defendant Revolution Resource Recovery Inc. The class action alleges that Revolution charged its customers a uniform 18% surcharge called the “Government Surcharge/Material Ban” that bears no relation to any fine, surcharge or levy incurred by Revolution in the course of providing services to the customer, and that by doing so it breached its contracts with its customers.

The class action also alleges that certain terms in Revolution’s customer service agreements are void or unenforceable because they restrict the ability of the class to cancel their contracts or use other waste management service providers.
