Shell has agreed to settle the class action subject to the approval of the British Columbia and Ontario Courts.
The settlement was approved by the Honourable Madam Justice Brown of the British Columbia Supreme Court on December 12, 2003.
On January 7, 2004, the settlement was approved by the Honourable Mr. Justice Winkler of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice.
In his endorsement of the settlement Justice Winkler stated that the settlement “is imaginative and user friendly. It provides fair compensation given the risks and the issue of proof of causation. It is fair, reasonable and is in the best interest of the class as a whole. The claims process is especially easy and flexible and the counsel fee does not reduce the benefits.”
