An Ottawa justice of the peace committed judicial misconduct by writing an opinion article in which she described bail court as a “disgrace” and issued a “retributive personal attack on prosecutors,” a disciplinary body has ruled. The decision stemming from Justice of the Peace Julie Lauzon’s article in the National Post was released Friday by the Justices of the Peace Review Council. A hearing date for possible sanctions will be held on July 16.
