Canadian Old Woman Tries To Sue For Mousetrap Ban On Behalf Of Mice

Retired lawyer and old woman Sandra Schnurr has filed papers in an effort to sue several Canadian retailers to stop the sale of glue traps on the behalf of rodents (archived). Ontario Superior Court Justice Lorne Sossin should issue an opinion in the coming months as to whether Schurr has standing to litigate on the behalf of actual rodents incapable of requesting or desiring her representation.

It is not improbable that Canadian Law becomes burdened with precedent declaring meddling old women welcome to declare themselves "representatives" of any other party without regard for the "represented" party's desire for such a thing.
