Poulton (1998), 108 O.A.C. 67 (Ont. Div.Ct.)
Peter A. Simm was sole counsel for the successful Applicant for Judicial Review in Poulton v. ORC (1998, Ont. Div. Ct.; varied only re costs 1999, Ont. C.A.).
The Divisional Court’s decision, vindicating one of North America’s leading standardbred horse trainers, notably precluded a rehearing by the ORC, saying “it is impossible to remedy the prejudice”. The ORC had effectively thwarted the possibility of having an independent lab test the remainder of an allegedly incriminating equine urine sample.
Poulton is cited in 9 Canadian legal textbooks, and in 3 appellate court or judicial review decisions, the most recent being in 2016. Media coverage included articles in the Globe & Mail and The Lawyer’s Weekly .
