"Class Counsel has...achieved a fair and reasonable settlement for the class"

Superior Court of Justice, August 7, 2014

                  Sunrise Propane Class Settlement Approval Hearing

 

"I have no difficulty approving this settlement.  I find it fair and reasonable and very much in the best interests of the class members.  I note that class counsel had several meetings with class members and were able to satisfy themselves that the proposed settlement would cover most if not all of the losses sustained.  That is, to say the least, an excellent result.”

“The Settlement Agreement in the case at bar has undergone the court's scrutiny, and it appears to me that in entering into the Settlement Agreement and in seeking certification on consent for settlement purposes, the plaintiffs and the defendants, with the assistance of their legal counsel, have provided the social good of access to justice and adequate compensation in accordance with Canadian law for perhaps thousands of citizens who may have been harmed by the Listeriosis outbreak...”

This fact favours the Whiting Group.”
