R. v. C.E.

A.J. No. 1363 (Alta. P.C.) – Client charged with impaired care or control of a motor vehicle and having care or control with a blood alcohol concentration exceeding 80 milligrams in 100 milliliters of blood. The Defence brought a novel application to prevent the Crown from sharing the contents of a defence Charter Notice. The application was successful. In light of other judicial decisions flowing from this case, the Crown later brought an application to have the judge reconsider her position. For reasons discussed in R. v. C.E.,  A.J. No. 486 (Alta. P.C.), the judge declined to alter her earlier decision. The jurisprudence in this latter decision was of sufficient interest, such that Judge’s decision was published in the Canadian Rights Reporter. In R. v. C.E.,  A.J. No. 169, the client was acquitted of all charges.
