#CyberFLASH: Inquiry must see explicit nude photos of Judge Lori Douglas

20141028-191503-gWINNIPEG – Some members of a committee who recommended Justice Lori Douglas be appointed to the bench were later shocked to learn explicit photos of her had been posted on the Internet, a Canadian Judicial Council inquiry was told Tuesday.

“Some of them will come and say that when it was made public in 2010, they almost fell from their chair, they were so surprised,” inquiry independent counsel Suzanne Cote said.

That contradicted the evidence of Justice Martin Freedman, chair of the committee, who testified in 2012 that committee members were well aware of allegations that Douglas’s husband Jack King had solicited a client to have sex with Douglas and posted nude pictures of her on the Internet.

Cote is opposing a motion by Douglas’s lawyer to quash the inquiry, derailed two years ago following the resignation of original independent counsel Guy Pratte and the subsequent resignation of the original inquiry panel.

“This is not a matter for summary dismissal,” Cote said. “The evidence is far from complete.”
