Associate Chief Justice J.D. Rooke's refusal to allow his own recusal application to be filed or heard is an unmistakable sign for the need to police the actions of The Alberta Court of Queen's Bench.
"If it can't be even filed, you can't appeal it. There is no official record to work from. Justice Rooke is obstructing Justice in everyway he can and he thinks he's immune," said Stephan during a conference call with a member of his investigative team and family members.
During his meeting with investigators and family David indicated that he has tried to work with Justice Rooke. "I've been polite and courteous and have done everything asked or ordered. But I have a wife and children who need protection from this man who has declared he will be the evidentiary gatekeeper through the trial. There is no doubt in my mind that he intends to continue assisting in the coverup that took place 7 years ago. He intends to hurt my wife and children and he is doing everything he can to prevent a fair trial"
Recusal applications are heard before and during trials when a litigant determines that they have a reason to believe a Judge has a conflict of interest or bias that would affect the outcome of the case. In this case Justice Rooke has determined he will remain involved in the case throughout the trial as Case Management Judge over Voir Dires. Voir Dires would usually fall to the Trial Judge.
Rejected Court Documents show clear examples of Breach of Trust where ACJ Rooke was abusive, ruled in opposition to Supreme Court Case law and is clearly identified to have bias against human rights activists who have been flagged by the government.
