CALGARY, June 22 /CNW/ - After fourteen days of evidence, closing
arguments will be heard Monday, June 25th in a landmark challenge to the
Alberta Government's automobile insurance legislation.
Fred Kozak, lead counsel for two plaintiffs who say the government's
$4,000 cap on soft tissue injuries discriminated against them, will make his
closing statement before Mr. Justice Neil Wittmann in Court of Queen's Bench
in Calgary (611 - 4th Street SW, Calgary).
The action is being supported by the Alberta Civil Trial Lawyers'
Association. President Arthur Wilson, Q.C., says his Association believes it
has a duty to ensure that Alberta laws comply with the Canadian Charter of
Rights and do not discriminate on the basis of disability.
Wilson will be available at the Calgary Court House for comment following
the presentation of closing arguments.
ACTLA MISSION STATEMENT: To advocate for a strong
civil justice system that protects the rights of all Albertans.
