Federal Court proceeding commenced against Canadian Judicial Council, Justice J. Bryan Shaughnessy
Court asked to rule on foundational issues concerning the Canadian Judicial Council and a Federal Judge.
On April 14, 2016, my lawyer, Paul Slansky, filed on my behalf a Notice of Application in the Federal Court of Canada; seeking a Judicial Review of the Canadian Judicial Council’s decision regarding my complaint against the Honourable Mr. Justice J. Bryan Shaughnessy for his actions on May 3, 2013.
The relief I am asking for is outlined in the Notice of Application, which is published here both as a .pdf file and in text below. Where the text and the .pdf file differ, the .pdf file is the accurate copy of the legal papers filed with the court.
It is my understanding that the issues before the court are far larger than just my personal case, and are of importance to all Canadians.
Legal professionals, lawyers and judges who read this Notice of Application will certainly recognize the serious implications of the issues brought forward in this court action.
This is a legal document and reads that way, so you might want to start with some of the articles previously published on DonaldBest.CA…
