Tahoe seeks to dismiss lawsuit in Guatemala

Thursday, April 9, 2015

Seven protesters hurt in a spray of rubber bullets outside a mine in Guatemala should not be allowed to sue the mine’s Canadian parent company merely because it has an office in Vancouver, the firm’s lawyer told B.C. Supreme Court.

Tahoe Resources is seeking dismissal of the civil lawsuit launched by plaintiffs in the Central American country on the basis that Canadian courts don’t have jurisdiction, said defense lawyer Karen Carteri.
