As of 2014 there were two federal judicial reviews underway in regards to New Prosperity. The first, which commenced on November 29 2013, challenges certain Panel findings and the Panel's failure to comply with principles of procedural fairness. The second Judicial Review commended on March 26, 2014. Taseko is asking the Federal Court to set aside decisions by the CEAA, the Minister of Environment and the Governor in Council because of a failure to observe the principles of natural justice and procedural fairness.
