Class-ac­tion law­suit over storm au­tho­rized

The Western Star - - CANADA -

MON­TREAL - A Que­bec judge has au­tho­rized a class-ac­tion law­suit re­lated to the de­ba­cle on two Mon­treal high­ways last March that left hun­dreds of mo­torists stranded af­ter a mas­sive snow­storm.

The storm blan­keted the city with about 40 cen­time­tres of snow, forc­ing some driv­ers to spend the night in their ve­hi­cles and oth­ers to aban­don their cars af­ter wait­ing hours in vain for help. Que­bec Su­pe­rior Court Jus­tice Don­ald Bis­son has given the green light for the law­suit to pro­ceed, with 1,649 reg­is­tered claimants seek­ing $2,500 each.
