CORAM:            The Chief Justice and La Forest, L’Heureux-Dubé, Sopinka, Gonthier, Cory,

McLachlin, Iacobucci and Major JJ.

 

The appeal is dismissed.  The stay of proceedings is set aside and the cases against the appellants are directed to proceed before a judge of the Trial Division.  In accordance with s. 6(3) of the Federal Court Act, which provides for the precedence of judges in the event that the Chief Justice and Associate Chief Justice are unable to act, the senior judge who is able to act should choose a presiding judge from among those judges of the Trial Division who have heretofore had nothing to do with the conduct of these cases.  The judge thus chosen will ignore any undertakings that Isaac C.J. or Jerome A.C.J. made to Mr. Thompson.  Neither Isaac C.J. nor Jerome A.C.J. will have anything further to do with these cases.

 

Under all the circumstances, costs are awarded to the appellants here and in the courts below.

 

 


[Traduction] Le pourvoi est rejeté.  La suspension des procédures est annulée et il est ordonné que les poursuites dirigées contre les appelants soient instruites par un juge de la Section de première instance.  Conformément au par. 6(3) de la Loi sur la Cour fédérale qui prévoit l’ordre de préséance des juges en cas d’empêchement du juge en chef et du juge en chef adjoint, le juge le plus ancien en poste en mesure d’exercer ces fonctions devrait désigner le juge chargé de l’instruction parmi les juges de la Section de première instance qui n’ont pas été mêlés à la conduite de ces affaires.  Le juge ainsi désigné ne doit pas tenir compte des engagements que le juge en chef Isaac ou le juge en chef adjoint Jerome ont pris envers Me Thompson.  Le juge en chef Isaac et le juge en chef adjoint Jerome ne doivent plus intervenir dans ces dossiers.

 

Compte tenu de toutes les circonstances, les appelants ont droit à leurs dépens devant toutes les cours.
