TORONTO – Several Toronto media organizations, including Global News, will be in court today over documents in the case of Mayor Rob Ford’s friend, Alexander Lisi.
Media lawyers, Lisi’s counsel and the crown will argue before a Superior Court judge about when these documents can be made public and how much of it should be released.
The information was used by police to obtain search warrants to investigate Lisi who was arrested in a drug bust earlier this month.
