-Nova Scotia’s chief justice Michael MacDonald has announced a three-person review committee to further investigate complaints filed against provincial court judge Gregory Lenehan.’s alleged misconduct in the taxi driver Bassam Al-Rawi case.
Lenehan presided over the sexual assault case earlier this year, and his decision caught national attention. His comments like “clearly, a drunk can consent.” sparked social media outrage, protests, and a letter writing campaign.
The review committee’s task will be to investigate each complaint and decide whether to dismiss it, resolve it with Lenehan’s agreement, or refer the complaint to a hearing of the entire Judicial Council.
There is also a pending appeal of the decision in Al-Rawi’s case which will be heard in the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal on Nov. 22nd.
