In January 2016, lawyers from Cassels Brock, on behalf of its client Pet Valu Canada Inc. succeeded before the Ontario Court of Appeal in obtaining the final dismissal of a $100 million class action brought against Pet Valu by its former franchisee. The Court of Appeal’s decision concludes over six years of litigation and represents an across-the-board victory by Pet Valu in defence of all of the claims raised by the plaintiff ex-franchisee.
