Case Details

United States of America V. Mr. AB

Nov 2, 2010
In this extradition case, the United States sought an extradition order from the Ontario courts directing that the respondents be surrendered to the authorities for their conduct in the United States. Mr. Shekter first obtained unprecedented orders against the Canadian Department of Justice requiring the disclosure of files from the Attorney General of Canada, the Attorney General of Ontario and the Toronto Police Service. When the orders were not fully complied with, Justice Backhouse of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice dismissed the proceedings. The Attorney General of Canada appealed that decision. In an almost unprecedented ruling, the Ontario Court of Appeal refused to hear the government’s appeal on the basis that the conduct of the government was highly inappropriate and constituted and abuse of process of the court. The appeal was, therefore dismissed outright. The proceedings ended there.

I first came into contact with Alden Dychtenberg and his highly competent staff after a car accident. Up t that point, almost two years later, I had felt that my problem were being shelved, undervalued, possibly because of my age.

Then my life began to change. Working with these capable, enthusiastic people I received truthfulness, honesty, candor and a unfailing understanding that someone "had my back".

Jamie Elsasser, a feisty , positive young lawyer, along with Alden, went to bat with rapid results. Much effort was expended on my behalf in a mission that took months to complete, ending with satisfaction, relief and much gratitude.

Should I ever again need such help I would not hesitate to call on the Dychtenberg team in perfect trust.
