Federal Court of Canada strikes down SNC-Lavalin’s request to review prosecutor’s decision to proceed with charges

The Federal Court of Canada has dismissed a request by SNC-Lavalin to review a federal prosecutor’s decision declining to settle criminal charges against the company out of court.

“It has no reasonable prospect of success in the context of the law and the governing jurisprudence and taking a realistic view,” Federal Court Justice Catherine Kane said in her ruling, issued Friday.
