The Federal Court has issued a revised timetable for the completion of examinations for discovery in this litigation:
- The Crown’s representative shall be examined during the week of July 11-15, 2022.
- The representative plaintiff shall be examined no later than September 30, 2022.
- The representative of the FNI will be examined either on the week of September 19-23, 2022 or September 29-30.
The Federal Court also denied the Plaintiff’s request to compel the parties to attend a Court-assisted mediation but indicated that the issue could be revisited at the conclusion of the examinations for discovery.
The parties will appear before the Court at a case management conference to address the timetable for next steps after completion of the examination for discoveries.
