Toronto JP likely to be removed from bench

As we had anticipated in a previous blog post,Toronto Justice of Peace, Jorge Barroilhet, has been recommended to be removed from office for misconduct.

Barroilhet was found guilty of judicial misconduct earlier this year in July and submissions were heard in September 2009, with the results of the submissions being released in mid October 2009. The Toronto Star reports that panelists that heard the submissions are putting in a recommendation to the Attorney General, Chris Bentley, that Barroilhet be stripped of his JP duties and taken off bench.
