San Juan market vendors to begin legal challenge against corporation

A group of vendors at the San Juan public market have moved ahead with their legal challenge over rent increases at the facility. 

This morning, High Court Judge Avason Guinlan-Williams granted leave for one of the vendors to pursue a judicial review against the San Juan/Laventille regional corporation. 

Earlier this month, another vendor was granted leave for a similar lawsuit.

The other vendors are currently in the process of filing similar claims, which may be joined at a later stage. 

The vendors are complaining that the rent on their stalls was increased by the corporation without it passing by-laws.
