UPDATE MAY 23 2015: 73 DAYS TO MAKE $100,000 AUGUST 4 (our Federal Court day) LEGAL FEE PAYMENT: see also LITIGATION UPDATES See MOTION RECORD FOR AUGUST 4-5 SUMMARY TRIAL VOLUME 1, VOLUME 2, VOLUME 3, VOLUME 4, and MEMORANDUM OF FACT AND LAW.
YOU ALREADY DONATED $400,000 TO PAY LEGAL FEES. WE NOW NEED $93,967 TO MAKE THE $100,000 AUGUST 4 PAYMENT FOR GINNY AND GWEN’S CANADIAN FATCA IGA LAWSUIT.
[Heidi says that if FATCA is so reasonable: “Then why not let anyone into your house to sort through all your drawers, look at all your finances and open all your mail”?]
Vancouver is not a cheap city to stay in — and money for litigation is always the most important. But Bubblebustin says: “My husband can possibly arrange for a block of rooms at a discount at the Weston Grand downtown Vancouver if we can get a definitive number of people who’d need them, and for how many nights. It’s within walking distance to the courthouse.” If you want to contact Bubblebustin send an email to the ADCS website and we will pass it on to her. GwEvil suggests website for cheap accommodation. I stayed at one of these at UBC.
AUGUST 4-5 TRIAL UPDATE — PLEASE COME TO VANCOUVER:
Our summary trial will be heard at Federal Court, 701 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, British Columbia, commencing on Tuesday, August 4, 2015 at 9:30 a.m. for two days max. Having lots of supporters at the trial might be helpful. We will try to set something up with the press. Proceedings will probably be fairly technical and tedious but a show of force filling the courtroom would be nice — and this is an historic occasion made possible entirely by your support.
See Litigation Updates for details, the actual summary trial filings and our thoughts on the summary and full trials. Court has not yet decided on Government response date to Summary Trial filings but I will post when received.
On August 11, 2014, Litigator Joseph Arvay filed a FATCA IGA lawsuit in Canada Federal Court on behalf of Plaintiffs Ginny and Gwen, the Alliance for the Defence of Canadian Sovereignty (en français), and all peoples. See Alliance’s Claims, Government response, our Alliance blog, and litigation updates. See MOTION RECORD FOR AUGUST 4-5 SUMMARY TRIAL VOLUME 1, VOLUME 2, VOLUME 3, VOLUME 4, and MEMORANDUM OF FACT AND LAW.
You ALREADY have paid FOUR $100,000 LEGAL RETAINER BILLS — not a small achievement for small donors.
— Your support is requested by Plaintiffs Ginny and Gwen of Ontario, Canada, who accept high personal financial risk including possibility of personally paying portion of Government legal costs if we lose lawsuit.
