Class Proceedings Funding Obtained

The Plaintiff has now obtained Stage One and Two funding from the Class Proceedings Fund for this action. Stage One refers to any steps taken up to the end of the hearing of a motion for an order of the court certifying the proceedings as a class proceeding. Stage Two refers to appeals of any order of the court relating to certifying the action as a class proceeding. This means that the Class Proceedings Fund will cover certain costs of prosecuting the action. These costs will be reimbursed out of any settlement or award, and the Class Proceedings Fund will be entitled to 10% of any ultimate recovery.
