SUDBURY, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 02/28/14 -- Northern Superior Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE: SUP) ("Northern Superior" or the "Company") has amended its Statement of Claim previously filed in the Company's legal action against the Province of Ontario.
These amendments were made in response to recent developments in the law regarding the Crown's duty to consult and the different ways in which aggrieved parties such as Northern Superior Resources can assert legal claims against the Crown. The Company believes these developments strengthen its case.
The Company's Amended Statement of Claim will be posted on the Company's website with the amendments highlighted. Ontario's amended Statement of Defense in response is expected within 2- 3 weeks.
The Superior Court of Justice has agreed to appoint a Judge to case manage the Company's legal action. Mr. Justice Lederer has been appointed for this purpose. The parties will appear before him next month to review the status of the matter and ensure the orderly progress of the litigation."
