This is an update on our Canadian FATCA IGA lawsuit — just to let you know that the lawsuit is alive and is moving forward, slowly.
Today our litigators and the Government attorneys met with a Case Management Judge to resolve differences.
The good news is that we now have permission from the Case Management Judge to file a motion for the Charter-Constitutional trial and provide our evidence in support of the motion. Government will also file a motion, for which we have 28 days to respond, on an issue in which there is disagreement between our side and Government.
Once that Government motion and our response is sorted out, there will be another Case Management Conference to resolve remaining issues prior to trial and to schedule the hearing.
— I am sorry, but we do not yet have a trial date in 2017, and I will keep you informed on developments.
Thank you for your patience. By now, we all know that litigation against Government does not move quickly.
Finally, I want to thank the brave Plaintiffs and Witnesses for their courage: They make our lawsuit possible.
