Do Common Law Courts Exist?
Hope For Justice is a workshop series that explores the idea and the evidence that there are two different courts in British Columbia (and every common law jurisdiction).
This course private members access only – each member must request access below.
By reviewing multiple court transcripts, personal witness testimony of court events and the history of the court system in B.C. which together create a compelling case can be made that common law courts are alive, well and little used.
One of the key pre-trial and trials that dramatically demonstrated the existence and operation of a common law court was made while attempting to discover and understand the events and legal games that occurred before, during and after the trial of Russ Porisky in Chilliwack and Abbotsford, British Columbia during 1999/2000. If you think you know what happened, you probably don’t why not get a fresh perspective…like the whole story?
The events of this trial and other trials add up to an interesting story that might lead one to conclude that there are two court systems operating, and one of them is common law, which anyone can still access, if they understand how.
Getting to the point of understanding how to access the common law courts is the reason this course was created. We attempt to connect various events in many court cases in a way that makes sense, provides evidence for the basic premise and encourage the hope that there is an active honourable common law court system that we can access where justice may be found, again.
From all accounts the main events in the year 2000 Porisky pre-trial and trial revolved around:
- a challenge to the style of the name on the summons and much later the charging instrument “Information” (NAME vs Name)
- claim natural person status from outside the bar
- court recognizes Russ as a natural person
- court issues an Order confirming the recognition of the natural person before the court
- court changes the style of the name on the Information from NAME to Name
- court issues Order that Russ, the natural person is the Named defendant
- on the day of trial Russ is asked to change courthouses to another city’s courthouse 2o miles away!
- the new court house on the day of trial (in Abbotsford) has a Canadian flag flying from the roofline of the specific courtroom
- no Canadian flag was anywhere on the grounds or roof of the courthouse before, or after trial
- courtroom for the trial has no bar, no judges bench, no witness box only tables and chairs etc.
- courtroom and courthouse after trial is back to “normal” bar, judges bench, witness box, no flag etc.
- judge on her own initiative argues with Crown, after Crown closes their case, and acquits Russ without raising any defence
- DoJ does not appeal acquittal
The legal concepts in play and addressed during this process are what Hope For Justice explores as well as the process of being recognized by the courts in a status that ensures all your rights are intact and protected by the court.
