Update:  Volkswagen Class Action

Published: April 27, 2017

The Volkswagen Class Action is being handled by a consortium of law firms on the mainland.    

My firm was not included in that consortium. I decided not to commence a class action here in Newfoundland, given the number of law firms involved in the Mainland Action and the fact that everyone would be covered under the mainland class action.

Please check out any updates with respect to the Volkswagen Class Action at the following address: https://www.volkswagenclassaction.com/

I wish to thank you for contacting me to join our class action here in Newfoundland.

You should now be covered by the Mainland Class Action.

If you require professional legal services on any matter here in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador please feel free to contact me.

Once again thank you for registering for the class action with my firm and I wish you every success in addressing the matter through the Mainland Class Action. I think you will be duly and properly served and compensated by the Mainland Class Action Settlement.

There were a number of matters set to be called in the Supreme Court on Thursday, March 16, 2017. They were cancelled due to a major storm in Happy Valley Goosebay.

The matters were called on Friday, March 17, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. All matters that were set for that date were put over to July 19, 2017 at 9:30 a.m.

The Court was advised the recent laying of criminal charges against twenty-nine (29) individuals had provided a new layer of complexity to the matters and time was needed to advise people respecting the issues arising from the new charges. As well we have not had an exchange of complete information from Nalcor respecting the particulars against each of the individuals summands to address the contempt complaint.

New information will be posted as it becomes available.

The death of Don Dunphy is a tragedy that has affected not only his immediate family and community but the province as a whole. It’s a sign of how close-knit and down-to-earth we are that when one of our own is killed, there is a collective outpouring of grief and outrage. And when that death occurs under troubling and mystifying circumstances, it causes a natural sense of fear and demand for answers and action.

The officer at the centre of the controversy over why and how Mr. Dunphy was killed has not been named, and the investigation is ongoing. Yet on Friday that officer sent a mass email to his colleagues, which has since been released to the media and published and shared widely.
