Discipline Decision – 2006


By an Order dated January 23, 2006, an Adjudication Panel of the Discipline Committee, pursuant to section 48(2) of the Law Society Act, 1999, has found Jerome P. Kennedy not guilty of conduct deserving of sanction.  The Complaint arose from certain comments allegedly made by Mr. Kennedy during a speech to the North American Wildlife Enforcement Officers Association on or about July 26, 2003.  On December 9, 2005 a written Joint Submission was filed with the Adjudication Panel.  The Panel accepted Mr. Kennedy’s explanation that it was not his intention to undermine the Judiciary as an institution.  The Panel noted that, by his evidence, Mr. Kennedy has re-affirmed his respect for the Court and his confidence in the ability of the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador to provide justice to all citizens of the Province.
