Judges and SRLs: Broken FaithNSRLP
This week’s podcast features the case of Allison Bowen, a self-represented litigant in family court, who was imprisoned for contempt on the request of her ex as a custody and child support conflict escalated between them. She had earlier asked the Canadian Judicial Council to replace Justice Brown with another family court judge, because she did not trust him to treat her without bias, and to judge the case based on the evidence, not whether he liked her or not. In related news: have any other SRLs been imprisoned for contempt? And what is the Law Society of Ontario going to roll out in its new plan for family paralegals?
