Case Details

United States of America V. Mr. AB

Nov 1, 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.

Many years ago I had the pleasure of meeting Alden and Wanda and their team, after having been involved in a car accident. I was very pleased with the outcome of my case. 10 years later when I had to use their services again I was treated with the same respect and honesty as before. They work very hard to achieve the best results for their clients. I would recommend this law firm to anyone.
