William Lerach, the father of abusive class-action lawsuits, is going to prison, but his works survive him. Even in Canada. Unfortunately.

The Toronto law firm of Juroviesky and Ricci LLP has filed a $2.1 billion class action suit in Ontario Superior Court against automakers and dealers in the United States, claiming they conspired to fix car prices 25- to 35-per-cent higher in Canada than in the United States. Defendants: General Motors Corp., General Motors of Canada Ltd., American Honda Motor Co. Inc., Honda Canada Inc., Chrysler Canada Inc., Chrysler LLC, Nissan North America Inc., Nissan Canada Inc., along with the Canadian Automobile Dealers Association and the National Automobile Dealers Association in the United States.
