Hearing set for Manitoba judge with nude photos

WINNIPEG - A hearing date has been set for a Manitoba judge whose explicit nude photographs appeared online.
A panel of the Canadian Judicial Council is to hold a hearing May 19 as it starts an inquiry into Lori Douglas, an associate chief justice of the Manitoba Court of Queen's Bench.
The inquiry is to determine whether Douglas should be removed from the bench, but the initial hearing is over procedural matters, such as who will have standing.
The judge's lawyer husband, Jack King, has already been reprimanded by the Law Society of Manitoba for suggesting to a client that he have sex with Douglas.
King also gave his client nude photographs of Douglas, which ended up on the Internet.
King apologized for his behaviour and said Douglas had done nothing other than privately indulge his strange tastes.
