Howie, Sacks & Henry LLP – Personal Injury Law – Adam Wagman

HSH Senior Partner and Ontario Trial Lawyers Association (OTLA) President-Elect, Adam Wagman quoted in The Law Times.

More than six months into its mandate, the federal government has yet to fill vacancies on the provincial courts’ bench – seven in the Superior Court, one in the Court of Appeal, and one in Family Court. Criminal lawyers and civil litigators say this is contributing to a significant backlog of cases in the Superior Court, causing delays that often last months and sometimes years.

In this article, Adam says:

If the Department of Justice does not act to fill the vacancies by the fall, Toronto’s Superior Court could see as many as six vacancies, compounding the situation further. Judicial appointments should be a priority for federal Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Ray.
