The Quebec court requests the adoption of a collective demand for sexual abuse against Jehovah's witnesses A trial proposes to accuse the leadership of the religious organization in Canada and the United States to protect alleged abusers The lawsuit is looking for $ 250.000 per plaintiff for moral and punitive damages. Radio-Canada says that, if approved by the court, collective action will be the first of its kind against Jehovah's witnesses, a religious movement that is already the subject of several individual trials in the United States. It is now up to the québec high court to determine whether the application is sufficiently substantiated to authorize collective action. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/quebec-court-asked-to-approve-sexual-abuse-class-action-lawsuit-against-jehovah-s-witnesses-1.4293138
