Canadian case moves ahead

The Lawyer's Daily reports:
The top judge of the Canadian military will face a court martial — presided over by a fellow military judge and with additional new charges including fraud under $5,000 — in an unprecedented case that opens a legal can of worms. 
On June 11, the Department of National Defence (DND) announced that special prosecutor Mark Poland has decided to refer to court martial (i.e. prefer) eight charges in relation to Chief Judge Mario Dutil’s expense filings, and in relation to an alleged personal relationship the senior military judge had with an unnamed female warrant officer under his command in the Office of the Chief Military Judge.
