Big win at the Supreme Court of Canada

Defence arguments prevailed at the Supreme Court of Canada in the Surrey Six murder case. Brock Martland, KC and Elliot Holzman (along with Daniel Song, KC and Jonathan Desbarats) were counsel for Matthew Johnston on the case. The high court addressed the legal test for when the defence can advance Charter of Rights applications in criminal cases, and agreed with the standard our office advocated for. Brock has been counsel on the Surrey Six case since 2011.
