Do you plan on another thread for that ? ...This ones conclusion was both a bit of a surprise and not really a surprise for me . I think the Judge was between a rock and a hard place .He chose a easier way out as it could be left in appeals courts .If the next trial gets a guilty verdict or if their becomes a offer to plea bargin ,this might go away quietly into the night . Ghomeshi will be doing a lot of thinking over the next few months .He is the one now that is between that rock and hard place now,imo If convicted ,the appeal for this one might take a different course from the way the original one took . He could basically spend a lot of time ,effort, and money for a long long time ....Or take the the poison pill and get over it ......hard call either way ....I kind of feel for him but ,this next trial might get some closure for any of the true victims , if there is any .......thanks for following this one ...peace
The Crowns preparing the case for June 5 (?) might turn the tables on him
Falsus in Uno, Falsus in Omnibus is a legal maxim which means false in one thing, false in everything. A Roman legal principle indicating that a witness who willfully falsifies one matter is not credible on any matter. The underlying motive for attorneys to impeach opposing witnesses in court: the principle discredits the rest of their testimony if it is without corroboration.

Crown will not be appealing the first case.
Jian Ghomeshi ruling on sex assault charges won't be appealed
There are differences between the two trials, however, which Silverstein said may bolster the prosecution's second case — the most significant point being the possibility of a witness. The complainant has claimed that a colleague witnessed one of the incidents, which included Ghomeshi allegedly groping her and grinding himself against her. An internal investigation conducted by Janice Rubin for the CBC also noted that several witnesses "had knowledge of" these events.
