Gomery more preoccupied with celebrity than justice, court says

I used to be a fan of the Gomery Commission. Then as the proceedings dragged on and Judge John Gomery strated to act more and more like Judge Judy, I because more and more uncomfortable.

Today, the Federal Court said Gomery was indeed too preoccupied with holding on to the spotlight and that public comments he made during the trial showed partiality against some witnesses (that is, Chrétien and Pelletier). “This preoccupation with the media outside the hearing room had a detrimental impact on the fairness of the proceedings.” It goes on and on…

Can’t way to read the whole decision.
