Canadian National Railway v. McKercher LLP, et al. (January 24, 2013)
Case # 34545
In 2008, the law firm McKercher LLP began representing Gordon Wallace as the representative plaintiff in a class action law suit. The class action law suit was against Canadian National Railway, Canadian Pacific Railway and others. The lawsuit alleged that the railways overcharged western farmers for grain transportation over a 25 year period. When the claim was launched, McKercher LLP also was acting for Canadian National Railway on a number of other matters. Canadian National Railway applied to disqualify McKercher LLP from acting on the class action law suit.
