REGINA — The Saskatchewan Court of Appeal has set aside a temporary injunction that halted a lawsuit filed by some parents of those who died in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash.

Sixteen people were killed and 13 were injured when an inexperienced truck driver went through a stop sign and into the path of the junior hockey team’s bus at a rural intersection near Tisdale, Sask., on April 6, 2018.

A few months after the crash, a lawsuit was brought by the families of five who died.

But a lawyer for a proposed class-action lawsuit by other families argued successfully last year that the original lawsuit should be put on hold until the court decides whether or not to certify the class action.

In a decision released Tuesday, the Court of Appeal ruled the judge who granted the temporary injunction made an error.

In a recent family law decision, Nychuk & Company lawyer David Flett successfully argued to obtain an award for his client of approximately double the court costs typically awarded in these types of matters, to be payable by the opposing party.

In giving reasons for awarding Mr. Flett’s client an increased amount of the typical costs, Mr. Justice Megaw praised both parties’ counsel for their exemplary professionalism, stating:

“Before embarking on my reasons, I want to specifically recognize the manner in which counsel conducted both their cases and themselves during this case. The litigation has been hard-fought since it was commenced in 2015. The most recent applications concerned fundamental issues affecting ongoing parenting and, specifically, the father’s ability to continue to engage in a meaningful way with the children. Despite the nature of the litigation, both counsel, while pursuing their clients’ interests, were unfailingly polite and professional with the court and, seemingly, with each other. They were continually interested in assisting the court to properly manage the litigation. In short, they acted in the best traditions of their profession in ensuring their advocacy, while resolute, was not influenced by the obvious emotion and turmoil being experienced by their clients. When advocacy is performed at such a high level, it is important the court recognize that and comment favourably upon it.”

Mr. Flett has been practicing Family Law since 1995, and is also a Qualified Arbitrator. When you and your family are thrown into the legal system, you need an experienced advocate to assist you to resolve the matter as efficiently and capably as possible.
