The complainant requested that an investigation be made regarding a judge based on allegations of bias and libel. The actions of the judge allegedly included bias when postponing the certification hearing without reason, inappropriately allowing submissions by the defendants and an inappropriate use of judicial discretion.

The complainant was reminded that it is the judge’s responsibility to assess relevant evidence and clarify any misunderstandings, and that it is not indication of bias towards any party. As well, the Council is not allowed to investigate a case with the purpose of changing the outcome. Since this matter did not prove judicial misconduct and falls outside the Council’s mandate, the matter was closed.
