On August 2, 2007, the Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta (the superior trial court of the province), released its reasons for judgment in Park v. Heimbeckner, 2007 ABQB, 386. Alex Kotkas and Katie Clayton of Fasken Martineau acted for James G. Park, an individual who was seriously injured in a high speed collision with an RCMP vehicle (suffering a fractured spine and other injuries and enduring chronic pain) in a trial that was heard in the spring of 2006. The defendants included the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Attorney General of Canada. Justice Alan D. Macleod found in favour of the plaintiff, awarding Mr. Park damages, interests and costs totalling approximately $1 million.
