Class Proceedings Act - Annotated

DescriptionMore Detail

This book is essential for: All practitioners involved in class action lawsuits.

The Class Proceedings Act imposes on lawyers and judges significant responsibilities beyond those in normal civil actions, but offers little guidance on how these responsibilities should be discharged.
In writing
Class Proceedings Act—Annotated, the Honourable Mr. Justice Frank Maczko and James Sullivan (co-author of the 2002 update) have set out to provide practical advice for those charged with making decisions in the proceedings. He has created a handy, current reference brimming with precise commentary on the key issues. Organized as a series of discussions prompted by specific sections of the Act, this guide is the book to keep at hand and to take to court.

Highlights of the 2002 update

  • discussion of the decisions from the Supreme Court of Canada on class proceedings, Hollick v. Toronto (City), and L.R. v. British Columbia
  • discussion of significant decisions on class proceedings from the British Columbia and Ontario trial and appellate courts
  • the British Columbia Supreme Court Practice Direction on Class Proceedings dated October 15, 2002 and the Request for Assignment of Judge form
  • a sample notice of motion for certification, a certification order, and a notice to class members
