Kelley Bryan represents client in precedent-setting Court of Appeal case

Kelley successfully represented a client with mental health issues before the Court of Appeal for Ontario. The case of Re Osawe was an appeal from a decision of the Ontario Review Board. On appeal, the Court of Appeal decided for the first time that the Board must give an accused person notice of its inclination to reject a joint submission and impose a more restrictive disposition. The Court held that notice “must satisfy the objective of allowing the accused a meaningful opportunity to present the evidence and argument relevant to the board’s disposition. The Court of Appeal’s decision is reported at Re Osawe (2015), 125 O.R. (3d) 428 (C.A.).
