U.S. court tosses case by mislabeled B.C. terrorist
A United States court has thrown out a lawsuit that accuses the Canadian government of ruining the life and multimillion-dollar business of a British Columbia woman after it wrongly branded her a terrorist. In a ruling issued last month, a Washington state district court says Perienne de Jaray cannot sue Canada over allegations of malicious prosecution or abuse of process because of an American law that grants immunity to foreign states. De Jaray, formerly a U.S.-based executive with electronics maker Apex USA, alleges she suffered years of groundless investigation on both sides of the border.
