UPDATE: September 2015
The motion for authorization of Jean-Pierre Leroux vs. La Compagnie d’assurance-vie manufacturers et al. (file number 500-06-000661-138), previously filed in the Superior Court of Québec, was discontinued on September 22, 2015. However, proposed class actions filed in other provinces are being litigated and may possibly result in compensation options for Québec residents, if the litigation is successful.
