Justice Lanns also ordered that SCASPA pay pre-judgement interest from the date of issue of the claim to July 10, 2018.

Mr. Dorsett was represented Mr. Sylvester Anthony and Mrs. Angelina Gracey Sookoo-Bobb and SCASPA by Mr. Terrance V. Byron of the law firm Byron & Byron of which Attorney General Vincent Byron is a law partner.
