B.C. legislature bomb plotters abandon fight for secret spy agency documents

VANCOUVER — Lawyers representing a British Columbia couple who tried to bomb the provincial legislature have abandoned efforts to force Canada’s spy agency to hand over secret documents related to a covert investigation into the pair.

Legal counsel for John Nuttall and Amanda Korody say attempts to access the confidential information were moving too slowly through the Federal Court and there was no end in sight.

Nuttall’s lawyer Marilyn Sandford says her client directed her to drop the application.
