Rath and Company Covid Trust
282050 Highway 22 W
Foothills, AB T0L 1W2
Rath and Company is representing a number of groups of citizens of Alberta and Canada who are fighting for Medical Professionals, Alberta Public Service Employees, Businesspeople, Frontline Responders, and others who are suffering as a result of abusive Federal and Provincial Covid-19 related mandates.
Rath and Company and its principal, Jeffrey R. W. Rath, has put the full resources of the firm, lawyers, and staff into waging this fight on a ProBono basis since the middle of 2020. As you can imagine, this is a very costly endeavour.
If you are interested in showing your support with a donation, the funds will be held in trust for the purpose of defraying salaries, legal fees and disbursements.

A class action is where one or a few individuals (plaintiffs) sues an individual, group, or entity (defendant) on behalf of a larger group of people who claim the same type of loss as the plaintiff.
Steps in a Class Action

The response and support has been incredible.

Certification of the claim.
Certification is a procedure where the court screens the claim to ensure its suitability to a class action. The claim must meet the following:
- discloses a cause of action;
- contains an identifiable class;
- proposes issues common to the class;
- is the preferable procedure for resolving the complaint; and
- has an appropriate representative plaintiff.
Once an action is certified, it proceeds to trial.
