Finally a new episode! Sorry Sorry Sorry. We have been slammed at home and at work. Almost three weeks ago we sat down with Peter Sankoff and Dino Bottos the night before they headed to the Supreme Court to argue the appeal of Barton v. The Queen. The case is complicated with important legal issues and the facts are tragic. Barton was charged w ...…
 
In Chapter 8: The Verdict we get our hearts broken. But before that we talk about closing arguments and the tips and tricks of the trade. Side note: what does the T in Pure-T-Filth stand for anyway. And then the verdict. Waiting for the verdict is the most intense thing ever and then hearing a verdict is that x100. We try to break down what Dav ...…
 
In late July, after not campaigning on the issue and in the middle of Toronto’s municipal election, Doug Ford and his Conservative government introduced Bill 5, also known as the Better Local Government Act, 2018. Bill 5 radically altered Toronto’s electoral districts by cutting the wards from 47 to 25 and in most cases doubling both their phys ...…
 
Is the defence of extreme intoxication in sexual-assault cases back? The headlines were attention grabbing after a Toronto Judge ruled that section 33.1 of the Criminal Code, which limited the defence of extreme intoxication in all assault cases, was unconstitutional. As the Globe and Mail put it: The defence of extreme intoxication in sexual-a ...…
 
In Chapter 7: The Blow Poke Returns the defence makes its toughest call - will Michael Peterson testify. Calling the accused to the stand is one of the biggest decision in any trial. This week we break down the tactical considerations when calling defence evidence. Oh and the Petersons also found the blow poke. What! What!?! The Staircase is fu ...…
 
In Chapter 6: The Prosecution's Revenge the prosecution puts its case to the jury - complete with prejudicial "gay sex" and a speculative similar fact application implicating Peterson in the 1980s death of his friend Elizabeth Ratliff. Peterson's defence team of David Rudolf and Tom Maher take apart the Crown's case with some great courtroom wo ...…
 
In Chapter 5: A Weak Case we finally get to the good stuff - the trial.

In Chapter 4: A Prosecution Trickery the Peterson defence team receives a fax (and yes faxes are still a thing) of the prosecution's autopsy report on Elizabeth Ratliff. And surprise surprise the State's pathologist not only determined that the death was not due to natural causes but went on to find the the cause of death was a "homicidal attac ...…
 
In Chapter 3: A Striking Coincidence we look at some breaking news - there was another staircase death! The prosecution sets the stage for a similar fact application. What is similar fact, when is it admissible, and would this fly in Canada? Spoiler Alert: prejudice destroys probative value in this fight.…
 
In Chapter 2: Secrets and Lies we look at the role bad character evidence can play in a trial. In Peterson's case the prosecution made the most tenuous of links between Peterson's sexuality and a motive to commit murder. The prosecution's theory was pretty speculative and it was way prejudicial. But maybe that is what the prosecution was counti ...…
 
It is like deja vu all over again as The Docket Podcast returns to an episode-by-episode examination of a real life crime docu-series. Only this time its all about The Staircase instead of Making A Murderer. In December 2001, novelist Michael Peterson called 911 to report that his wife Kathleen had fallen down a narrow twisting set of stairs an ...…
 
This episode we open with a discussion of an important op-ed written by Amanda Byrd. Byrd, a law student, spent hundreds of hours preparing for a moot court.
