BRIEF SUMMARY FROM ARTICLE ABOVE:
Recent changes to Canada's immigration legislation have called for the closure of Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) files submitted before February 28, 2008. Many who applied before this date have been confused and upset by this decision, and want to know what they can do to fight it.

If you submitted an application to the FSW program before February 28, 2008, and a selection decision on your application was not made by March 29, 2012, you can add your name to the list of applicants challenging the government's decision. Attorney David Cohen is acting as co-counsel in the effort to prevent Citizenship and Immigration Canada from terminating pre-February 2008 applications. He is currently representing approximately 200 applicants.

The more applicants who are willing to take a stand against the decision, the stronger message they will send to the Canadian government in court. You can take a stand now by clicking the link below and by paying a one-time deposit of USD $500:

This is a nice step by David Cohen and I think the effected applicants must not hesitate to response this offer of just $500.

OP 6
Federal Skilled Workers - Applications 
received before February 27, 2008

This processing manual is updated lately on 22-03-2012

Below is an important part which says how they are going to deal with those pre feb 2008 files which are active:

10.3. Substituted evaluation
R76(3) makes possible substituted evaluation by an officer. This authority may be used if an
officer believes the point total is not a sufficient indicator of whether or not the applicant may
become economically established in Canada.
Substituted evaluation is to be considered on a case-by-case basis. The scope of what an officer
might consider as relevant cannot be limited by a prescribed list of factors to be used in support of
exercising substituted evaluation. There are any number and combination of considerations that
an officer might cite as being pertinent to assessing, as per the wording of R76(3): “. . . the
likelihood of the ability of the skilled worker to become economically established in Canada. . . .” 
Frequency of use will vary from visa office to visa office, as some will find in their caseloads more
situations of disconnect between the point total and establishment prospects than will others. The
fact that the applicant “almost attained” a pass mark is not, in itself, grounds to recommend the
use of substituted evaluation. Rather, the officer needs to identify and document the facts
demonstrating that the points awarded are not a sufficient indicator of the applicant's ability to
become economically established in Canada.
For legal clarity, officers should employ the terms used in legislation, such as “substituted
evaluation” or “ability to become economically established.”

I also think in the current circumstances IF the litigants win the lawsuit, the favourable judgement will benefit only to those specific applicants who would have partcipated in the lawsuit . The game is over for all other applicants except partcipating in the lawsuit.In that case I think the initiative taken by Campbell Cohen & his team is a very encouraging step as it provides a genuine and reliable platform for the applicants.

hi Immanuelluna, we received the acknowledgement receipt from Campbell Cohen team five days after we paid 500USD thru credit card. In their reply they said, as per quoted below:

QUOTE:
"Please note: If you have chosen to submit the $500 retainer fee through Western Union, bank draft, wire transfer, or through a method other than credit card or PayPal, our representation can begin only once your payment arrives at our place of business in Montreal, Canada.

With this in mind, kindly ensure that your retainer payment arrives at our offices using the instructions provided to you in our previous email, and that your 4-digit file number is associated with it.

If you require assistance, do not hesitate to contact classaction @ canadavisa.com.

Once your retainer fee is received, we will contact you if any further information is required in order to include you in the Federal Skilled Worker Class Action Lawsuit."

Hope this helps! goodluck to us!

Good luck to those individuals pursuing this although one wonders what the result might be seeing that the Canadian Govt was intending on returning monies paid. As for those wanting to pay money for the class action suit, paying by Western Union is never a good idea as anyone can claim the funds. It is usually better to pay using your bank and collecting the said lawyers bank details that makes it easier to trace etc as opposed to Western Union.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL.
