‘Warman vs. internet privacy’ case appeal hearing, part 3: introductions

They narrative of my observations of this event started out in a rather tongue-in-cheek manner:  fully aware of the importance of this case, this was my way of relieving some of the tension.  However, now that I will be describing the proceedings themselves, my reporting will be as accurate as possible. Connie Fournier’s observations of these same proceedings can be found here and here.

When I last left off, the 3 judges had entered the courtroom, dispensed with another matter and invited all the lawyers present – for both sides in the action as well as the two intervening parties.

Describing positions as seen from the spectator benches in the courtroom, the introductions began on the right:

On behalf of the intervenor Canadian Civil Liberties (CCLA), there  were

Representing the appellants, Connie and Mark Fournier, there was

On behalf of the intervenor Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic (CIPPIC), there was

On behalf of the complainant, Richard Warman, there were

Very interesting group of people!

The judges did not introduce themselves.  However, these are their names (again, the order is from right to left, as observed if one had their back against the ‘main’ door):

  • The Honourable Mr. Justice Herman J. Wilton-Siegel
  • The Honourable Mr. Justice James C. Kent
  • The Honourable Mr. Justice Thomas A. Heeney

I do not know the name of the Clerk of the Court or the Bailiff.

As I said in my earlier post, the spectators included David Fewer, as well as Connie Fournier, Mark Fournier, Guy Poirier, a young woman whom I presume to have been an aid to the Katz/Lewis team, an unidentified blond woman in a gray pantsuit and myself.

Surprisingly enough, these were all the people there!
