Lawyer Ches Crosbie speaks to reporters at Newfoundland and Labrador Supreme Court in St. John's in this Telegram file photo.
The trial began in early April and questions whether the Newfoundland and Labrador government is negligent in not doing enough to prevent deaths and injury due to moose-vehicle collisions, since it introduced the non-native animal to the province many years ago.
The lawyers for the class of plaintiffs are Ches Crosbie and Jessica Dellow. Defence lawyers are Peter Ralph and David Rogers, while hearing the case is Justice Robert Stack.
Crosbie said in a news release this is the biggest road injury lawsuit ever. The team at Ches Crosbie Barristers handles mostly individual injury claims resulting from road accidents. Spectators are welcomed to attend to observe the final arguments.
