Will Barristers: Morin & Miller along with Co-Counsel Motley Rice LLC Announce Air France Class Actions to Merge

MT. PLEASANT, S.C. & TORONTO--(CCNMatthews - Oct 11, 2005) -

The law firms pursuing class actions in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice arising from the Air France Flight 358 crash at Pearson International Airport today announced that they have decided to work together to provide a united front against Air France and the other named defendants.

Will Barristers: Morin & Miller along with co-counsel Motley Rice LLC (Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina) and Camp Fiorante Matthews, along with their co-counsel Harvey Strosberg Q.C. of Sutts, Strosberg and Glynn Hotz have joined forces to pursue a single class action on behalf of all passengers on board Flight 358 and their families.

The combined class action will be lead by J.J. Camp, Q.C. and Joe Fiorante of Camp Fiorante Matthews and Paul Miller of Will Barristers.

The firms intend to hold a meeting at the Toronto Marriott Downtown, Eaton Centre (525 Bay Street, 416-597-9200) for all of their clients and any other interested passengers on November 9, 2005 at 6:00 p.m. to provide an update on the progress of the class action and to answer any questions that passengers and their families may have.

Air France has recently begun to make settlement offers to settle the cases of those passengers and family members not represented by counsel. Class counsel strongly recommends that passengers and family members not accept any settlement offers without the benefit of independent legal advice.

For further information please feel free to contact either Paul S. Miller at (416)360-1194 or JJ Camp/Joe Fiorante at (604) 689-5777.
