High-profile Federal Court Judge Mosley picked to hear voter suppression allegations case, hearings begin Dec. 10

The Federal Court has assigned one of its most high-profile judges, who made a key ruling ordering government disclosure of key interrogation video of accused Afghanistan war terrorist Omar Khadr, to hear the first court claims stemming from allegations of voter suppression in the 2011 federal election.

Federal Court Justice Richard Mosley, a former assistant deputy minister in the Justice Department named to the Federal Court by then-prime minister Jean Chrétien and his Cabinet in 2003, will preside over the hearings to begin next month over claims from voters in six federal ridings to have those elections of Conservative candidates in their electoral districts overturned.
