Lawyers will be in court in Vancouver on Friday, December 10, 2004, attending the first case management case in the strip search class action lawsuit. Mr. Justice Romilly is expected to hear from lawyers for the plaintiffs, the Government of British Columbia and the City of Vancouver on issues such as the scheduling of a subsequent certification application.

The plaintiffs allege that the Vancouver Jail has employed a practice of routinely strip-searching everyone brought into the facility, in violation of their constitutional rights.
