1. Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce v. Credit Valley Institute of Business and
Technology,  O.J. No. 40 (S.C.J.)
2. R. v. Nason, 2014 ABPC 33
The recent decision of the Alberta Provincial Court in R. v. Nason has the potential to
expand the availability of Rowbotham orders. In Nason, the defendant is charged with
provincial or regulatory Securities Act offences. If convicted, he is exposed to substantial
fines and the risk of incarceration. On February 14, the trial judge accepted the
defendant’s argument that, in order to obtain a fair trial, he required the assistance of a
specialized securities lawyer (just not a “criminal lawyer”) at a cost that could be $50,000.
He stayed the prosecution until state funding is paid into the securities lawyer’s trust
account for the defence of the defendant.
