The City of Windsor and Town of Tecumseh each commenced an appeal Thursday of last Friday’s court decision restricting their future communications to the public about the bingo class action, and the Opt Out Campaign.
The appeal seeks to set aside this order, and remove the restrictions imposed by the Superior Court judge last week. The City and Town are asking for the appeal to be heard and decided on an urgent basis, given the time-limited nature of the Opt-Out Period in the class action, which ends on May 15, 2016.
While the Superior Court order remains in effect, existing communications by the Town and City have been permitted to remain in place.
“The court’s order in this case raises important concerns and legal questions that we believe require review by a higher court”, said Windsor City Solicitor Shelby Askin Hager. “Because of the nature of the order, the City and Town will express those concerns in their legal filings rather than through public statements.”
