A class action involves a group of two or more people in a similar circumstance suing another party. Categories include: consumer protection, products liability, employment and pension protection, as well as environmental issues. Provincial class proceedings are governed by The Class Proceedings Act of Manitoba, which came into effect on January 1, 2003.
Pollock & Company Winnipeg was the first Manitoba law firm to file a proposed class proceeding under this legislation. More recently, Pollock & Company participated in a major national class action settlement against the manufacturers of a controversial drug, which usage contributed to incidents of strokes and heart attacks. We continue to handle class action law and to fight for our clients’ rights.
