A group of senior Quebec Superior Court judges are suing the provincial government over the exclusive jurisdiction of the Court of Quebec in some civil matters.
In an extremely rare move, the Quebec Superior Court’s chief justice, senior associate chief justice and associate chief justice launched the lawsuit last week, challenging whether the provincial court has exclusive jurisdiction the hear civil claims for more than $10,000. The lawsuit also questions whether the provincial court should hear appeals from tribunals and commissions.
If ultimately successful, this could potentially mean a flood of cases moving to the Superior Court that would have otherwise been heard by the provincial court, lawyers say.
