The Supreme Court has paved the way for a class-action lawsuit over military veterans’ pensions.
Military mechanic Dennis Manuge launched the lawsuit – representing about 6,500 injured veterans – and it was certified by the Federal Court.
But it was later rejected by the Federal Court of Appeal.
The Supreme Court has reinstated the original decision.
Mr. Manuge was injured in 2002 and at Canadian Forces Base Petawawa.
He had $10,000 of his disability pension clawed back by the federal government after he left the military.
An investigation by the military ombudsman found the clawback “profoundly unfair.”
