    The Supreme Court refuses to hear JTI-MacDonald

    The Supreme Court of Canada just dismissed an application for leave to appeal presented by the tobacco company JTI-MacDonald Corp. seeking to invalidate the Tobacco-related Damages and Health Care Costs Recovery Act.

    This decision is excellent news for the class action against tobacco companies because the law in question, adopted by the National Assembly in 2009, eases the burden of proof on plaintiffs acting against the tobacco industry and eliminates extinctive prescription for many tobacco-victims.
