Judge Approves Settlement In Alberta Child Welfare Lawsuit

A class-action lawsuit by Albertans abused while in the care of the provincial child welfare system has been officially settled, after a judge approved financial terms Friday that will provide most successful claimants $15,000 to $30,000 in compensation.

“This settlement is, in my view, an appropriate resolution to litigation that at times had difficulty getting any traction,” Court of Queen’s bench Justice Denny Thomas said in wrapping up a case started more than a decade ago. “I’m not in a position to disapprove of this and say, ‘Go try again.’ I am satisfied this is fair, reasonable and in the best interests of all class members.”

Thomas received a number of objections to the deal, including from two women who appeared in court to ask for an adjournment. Both women said they, and other potential claimants, were confused about the terms of the settlement and upset because they believed the case would lead to higher compensation and a chance to receive justice for the abuse inflicted on them.

“This doesn’t reflect what I was told it would be,” said one woman, who cannot be named. “I need somebody to pay for what happened to me.” Click Here To Read More>>
