Regina judge set to hear arguments that could postpone first Humboldt Broncos bus crash lawsuit

A Regina judge is set to hear arguments this week on whether the first lawsuit filed in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash will be able to proceed or be put on hold.

Sixteen people died and 13 were injured on April 6th, 2018 when the driver of a semi-truck blew a stop sign and drove into the path of the junior hockey team’s bus near Tisdale, Saskatchewan.

Eleven lawsuits have since been filed, with the first representing the families of Adam Herold, Jaxon Joseph, Logan Hunter, Jacob Leicht and assistant coach Mark Cross.

A class action lawsuit wants the Herold lawsuit stayed until it obtains certification so all families are treated equally, but the certification hearing won’t happen until April of next year.
