Some of you will, no doubt, have been following the Lori Douglas hearing. For those of you who haven’t, Lori Douglas is the Associate Chief Justice of the Court of Queen’s Bench of Manitoba whose husband posted pictures online of her “engaging in bondage, playing with sex toys and performing oral sex” and, apparently, peeing on grass (for a full description, accompanied by David Lat’s editorializing, but not the pictures themselves, see the Above the Law’s post on the topic). He also, apparently, tried (without her knowledge) to arrange for a client, Mr Chapman, to have sex with her. Mr. Chapman has since complained and Justice Douglas has been dragged before the Canadian Judicial Council (the “CJC”), and threatened with removal from the bench.
Suffice to say, it’s a sordid story.
