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.

Richard, you never cease to amaze me. You find issues that others would easily pass over as not being central to the case or to the client’s liberty, or being just too tough or complex to address…and then you work them like no one else. It is a combination of art and science…and you are both an artist and a scientist. Well done and thank you.
