UPDATE MAY 26 2015: 70 DAYS TO MAKE $100,000 AUGUST 4 (our Federal Court day) LEGAL FEE PAYMENT: see also LITIGATION UPDATES See MOTION RECORD FOR AUGUST 4-5 SUMMARY TRIAL VOLUME 1, VOLUME 2, VOLUME 3, VOLUME 4, and MEMORANDUM OF FACT AND LAW.
YOU ALREADY DONATED $400,000 TO PAY LEGAL FEES. WE NOW NEED $93,129 TO MAKE THE $100,000 AUGUST 4 PAYMENT FOR GINNY AND GWEN’S CANADIAN FATCA IGA LAWSUIT.
AUGUST 4-5 TRIAL UPDATE — PLEASE COME TO VANCOUVER:
Our summary trial will be heard at Federal Court, 701 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, British Columbia, commencing on Tuesday, August 4, 2015 at 9:30 a.m. for two days max. PatCanadian has kindly agreed to help people find inexpensive housing in pricey Vancouver. Please let her know if your are planning to come at firstname.lastname@example.org. Having lots of supporter-families (including teenagers who understand) at the trial might be helpful. Proceedings will probably be fairly technical and tedious but a show of force filling the courtroom would be nice — and this is an historic occasion that you made possible.
See Litigation Updates for details, the actual summary trial filings and our thoughts on the summary and full trials. Court has not yet decided on Government response date to Summary Trial filings but I will post when received.
On August 11, 2014, Litigator Joseph Arvay filed a FATCA IGA lawsuit in Canada Federal Court on behalf of Plaintiffs Ginny and Gwen, the Alliance for the Defence of Canadian Sovereignty (en français), and all peoples. See Alliance’s Claims, Government response, our Alliance blog, and litigation updates. See MOTION RECORD FOR AUGUST 4-5 SUMMARY TRIAL VOLUME 1, VOLUME 2, VOLUME 3, VOLUME 4, and MEMORANDUM OF FACT AND LAW.
You ALREADY have paid FOUR $100,000 LEGAL RETAINER BILLS — not a small achievement for small donors.
— Your support is requested by Plaintiffs Ginny and Gwen of Ontario, Canada, who accept high personal financial risk including possibility of personally paying portion of Government legal costs if we lose lawsuit.
