Lawyer Julius Gray challenges Bill 96 in court
Another group is challenging the constitutionality of Bill 96, with the help of constitutional lawyer Julius Grey.
Filed on September 6, the lawsuit will seek to strike down some of the most controversial sections of the law, which came into force on September 1. In particular, the powers of search and seizure without a warrant granted to the Office québécois de la langue française and the articles limiting the use of English in the courts.
Mr. Gray is known to have defended many cases affecting individual rights, including certain articles of the Charter of the French language.
Two articles of Bill 96 have already been suspended in the context of a separate challenge.
More details to come.
