North Bay Hospitals Privacy Breach
Update – September 6, 2019
We are currently in the Disclosure Stage of this class action.
At this stage, we are exchanging documents that are relevant to the privacy breach with the other parties, namely, the North Bay Regional Health Centre and Melissa McLellan.
We have reviewed the documents provided by the Hospital thus far and have requested further documents from the Hospital. We are currently waiting for the Hospital to provide us with information regarding the specific details of the privacy breaches as they relate to each individual class member.
We are also working with the Case Management Judge so that we can schedule examinations of a representative of the Hospital and Ms. McLellan. The representative plaintiffs will also be examined on behalf of all class members.
As a class member, you do not need to worry about providing us with any documentation or being examined.
We are hopeful that both the disclosure of all relevant documentation and the examinations of the relevant parties will be completed by the end of this year. Following these steps, the next major step in the process will be a hearing before the Case Management Judge.
Importantly, please be aware that you do not need to do anything at this stage. You will not be asked for any documentation and you will not need to attend court or be examined.
