One of the plaintiffs’ experts was examined for discovery from May 23-24, 2013 regarding a report on the harm suffered by former students who attended the residential schools in this action, and their family members.
Further examinations for discovery of experts who provided expert opinion reports in these class proceedings are expected to take place in August 2013.
The defendant has provided the plaintiffs with further documents related to these class proceedings. Rather than conducting a further examination for discovery of the defendant’s representative regarding these further productions, the plaintiffs expect to serve written interrogatories (written questions related to the documents provided) regarding these further productions by July 5, 2013.
The plaintiffs continue to await the decision of the Honourable Justice Butler on the plaintiffs’ motion to sever or stay the third party claims, which decision is expected to be released by the end of August 2013.
