Obituary for Charter Litigation Pioneer Brian Morgan

There was a lengthy bio/obituary of Canadian lawyer Brian Morgan in today's Globe and Mail.

Morgan was a Rhodes Scholar, a law clerk for Mr. Justice Brian Dickson, who later became Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, and a partner at Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt in Toronto.

He also argued the first case heard by the Supreme Court after the passing of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms: Law Society of Upper Canada v. Skapinker, [1984] 1 S.C.R. 357.

He died early last week in Toronto from a brain tumour at age 56.
