B.C. judge permits 'surreal' lawsuit to proceed Add to ...

A B.C. man's "outlandish" lawsuit claiming the RCMP used "subliminal messaging" technology to get inside his head has survived a petition to have it thrown out, a decision the judge in the case admits may appear confusing to casual observers.

Judge James Williams describes David Jonathan Ross's lawsuit as "outlandish," "unlikely" and "surreal," but said in a decision released yesterday that the federal and provincial governments failed to successfully argue their petition, so the lawsuit stands.

Mr. Ross, who lives about 150 kilometres east of Vancouver near Hope, B.C., alleged he was under surveillance after RCMP officers visited his home in December, 2003.
