Manitoba judge’s pornographic photos surface online

Judge’s lawyer husband solicited sex with photos

A Winnipeg man says his lawyer, Jack King, sent him “disgusting” nude pictures of King’s wife, Associate Chief Justice Lori Douglas, engaged in bondage with chains, using sex toys and performing oral sex. Alexander Chapman, a 44-year-old computer specialist says that he was sent a link to the web site that promotes inter-racial sex (Chapman is black and originally from Trinidad) by King, who had completed Chapman’s divorce in 2003. “I wanted to puke,” Chapman said in an interview on CBC News, adding “[King] looked at me as a sex object.” Douglas became a judge in 2005, at which time she would have been required to disclose her kinky past, say experts. Past Supreme Court rulings have affirmed that as the embodiment of the justice system, judges should not be hired if their past will reflect badly on the court, says Sébastien Grammond, dean of civil law at the University of Ottawa. A complaint was filed with the Canadian Judicial Council.
