TORONTO, March 21, 2013 /CNW/ - This morning, the Supreme Court of Canada denied leave to appeal in the cases of Fulawka v. Scotiabank and Fresco v. Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. Both cases are class actions alleging systemic unpaid overtime. Last June, the Ontario Court of Appeal ruled that both cases should be certified as class actions and allowed to proceed to trial. The banks sought to appeal those judgments to the Supreme Court of Canada. The decision of the Supreme Court of Canada today upholds the ruling of the Ontario Court of Appeal. The plaintiffs in both cases are represented by the law firms of Roy Elliott O'Connor LLP and Sack Goldblatt Mitchell LLP. Lead counsel David O'Connor and Louis Sokolov advised that both Cindy Fulawka and Dara Fresco are pleased that the cases and the claims of the class members can now be pressed forward on their merits.
