Some of his colleagues have lawyer Carrie Linde. It was annoying but rejected as benign. When 80-year-old Abu relies on face-to-face tactics and rhetoric for shock jocks on and off the court.
Linde believes he may need to push the envelope on behalf of the client. If the facts aren't good, claim the law, and if the law doesn't help, discuss the facts. And if neither helps, stir the pan.
He was a strange enemy of B.C.'s Legal Society. Having failed half a century ago, he tried to keep him out of the profession for his B.C. college. Student antique.
Now, in the twilight of his career, his forever young 60's idealism triggered a bookend joust. This time, he is said to have gone too far for his father to stop his teenager from continuing testosterone treatment.
B.C. In a Supreme Court proceeding in early 2019, Linde was accused of violating a ban imposed to protect the privacy of young people.
Judge Francesca Marzari concludes the media interview with an internet post showing that he or his father is not pursuing the best interests of the youth.
Linde claimed it was an honest mistake and removed the material from his site.
Marzari may have sanctioned him or, as other judges did, suggested that the Bar Association investigate Linde's actions. She didn't.
When Dad lost, Linde sought to suspend his decision, and in mid-August 2019, Judge Christopher Hinkson said no.
Then, on August 16, the Bar Association notified Linde that he was under investigation after receiving a complaint from Hinkson.
The Bar Association warned Linde not to share, quote, or speak about complaints. Linde wanted to be furious, not a stew. He had a word of choice for the presiding judge.
But after a year, nothing happened.
Then on December 15, 2020, Hinkson issued a directive asking court participants to provide the desired pronoun — he, she, they, he, her, their…
Rule ignitedA shootout between lawyers, handing Lindea glorious beginning to the Crusades of his gender.
When the Bar Association put the preferred pronoun on the agenda of the 2021 Annual Meeting, it poured an accelerator on the flames.
Meanwhile, as a result of Linde's research, the final citation was made on June 21, 2021. He claimed that he violated the court order three times between May 2019 and January 2021. A pronunciation rule that distributes an email titled "Law Society Blues" containing posters of two shooters saying "Don't miss the shootout at LSBC Coral".
The complaint that his rhetoric "looked like an attempt to arouse a sense of violence and incite others" triggered another quote.
Finally, Linde was warned to consider "historically marginalized" emotions. This is because the use of such words in the future may be considered a professional offense.
Anyway, on October 4, 2021, the Annual Bar Association degenerated to call the name, revealing widespread opposition to the Pronoun Directive. It was embarrassing. The rules were not within that scope, not the work to support, and the public interest was ignored.
A month later, on November 18, Hinkson announced that the judges' "My Lord" and "My Lady" titles could be removed.
On December 13, Linde received a second quote on May 15, 2021 for violating the court ban.
He was angry, but he was eagerly expecting a disciplinary action hearing. He has a pulpit and tells him what he believed was an unruly attempt to curb his participation in the gender debate. He imagined blaming Hinxon for his Animas and prosecuting the law society for not identifying the judge as a magnificent puppet of his persecution. That didn't happen.
Last month's regular inquiry was surprisingly held on the camera.
"Going back to the old chunky club, going back to the Star Chamber, it's progressive," Linde enthusiastically joked.
Jason Kuzminsky, Communication Director of the Bar Association, explained the secret as follows:
"Our rules require that all information that forms part of a complaint be treated as confidential. More important than who the complainant is, the complaint is investigated and the profession. Evidence of a code of conduct violation was sufficient to prove the issued citation. "
It's a fake — the presiding judge investigates and hides a lawyer. You cannot ask the Legal Association to leave it as it is. If a person in that strong position complains about a lawyer, make it public because transparency is needed to avoid the risk of threats and abuse that could affect the process of justice. need to do it.
Regardless of the verdict on Linde's actions, Attorney General David Evie must address this apparent concern.
With various interests, childish delights, and famous photographs, Linde comes across as a little Marcel Duchamp, who enjoys fine-tuning a man's nose.
But he is not a Dada artist. The seriousness of the trial and the risk of damages to adolescents should not be taken lightly.
Nevertheless, the man who once got a UBC library card for his dog and appointed a brewer as an honorary law student to annoy the venture remains unrepentant. I don't know what will happen next, but whatever they do, they will continue. As they say, that's a good reason.
