Michael FITZ- JAMES, Editor: 1951-2005
Founding editor of a string of magazines for lawyers used tabloid techniques and a tart tongue to force the legal profession to live up to its lofty standards
By Kirk MAKIN, Friday, April 1, 2005, Page S7
As a writer and newsroom leader, Michael FITZ- JAMES goaded those in high places with the same exuberance he brought to the outlandish tales he penned for supermarket tabloids.
It made him a most unlikely figure to force-march the staid, unimaginative practice of legal journalism into the modern age yet, that is precisely what he did. Over the course of his career, he stirred to life several thriving legal publications and inspired a generation of legal writers who had either trained under his insistent standards or were forced to compete with them.
"It is generally accepted that Mike pretty well invented legal journalism in Canada," said Jeffrey MILLER, a veteran columnist and author of several books. "Before that, most of what existed was self-serving and without news value. For him, there were no sacred cows -- which at first was a terrible shock to the legal community."
The son of a doctor who practised in London, Ontario, Mr. FITZ- JAMES's entry into legal journalism was as unorthodox as the man. A graduate of McGill University's law program, he was repulsed by the fustiness and unrelenting stress of a legal practice.
At the same time, Mr. FITZ- JAMES was a natural raconteur who delighted in telling offbeat or lurid stories. Casting about for anything that paid a salary, he gravitated to the racy world of Montreal tabloid journalism. On a try-out assignment at the National Examiner, an editor told Mr. FITZ- JAMES to compose a tabloid story based on a recipe for Mexican hot-pepper soup clipped from the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
"Tequila-drinking Mexicans are known to medical science as the world's worst alcoholics," Mr. FITZ- JAMES wrote. "But thanks to an all-natural, just-discovered hangover cure, they can lead normal lives again."
Mr. FITZ- JAMES was hired on the spot. He quickly honed a talent for spotting story angles from which he could spin the leanest of facts into the most expansive of stories. He would go on to write such classics as "Bigfoot Stole my Wife," and "U.F.O. Base Under Lake Ontario." Eventually, however, the tabloids pulled up stakes or went under. Mr. FITZ- JAMES began searching for a new income and, perhaps, a more meaningful job.
It was 1982, and the newly enacted Charter of Rights and Freedoms was reverberating through every area of law. Judges had acquired broad new powers, legislators were compelled to draft laws with an eye to their constitutionality, and lawyers were about to see their profession acquire a radically new image.
It was the perfect time for Mr. FITZ- JAMES to act as founding editor of the Ontario Lawyers Weekly -- the first publication aimed at lawyers that seriously explored their cases, their practice, their ethics and their gossip. "Together, the newly patriated Constitution and the newly crafted legal newspaper bore witness to -- and participated in -- the growing up of Canadian law," Mr. MILLER said.
Many believed that the newsweekly would not last, but they had not reckoned with Mr. FITZ- JAMES's determination. A ruddy, imposing figure with a booming voice, he had a manic capacity for work and drove those under him to show the same. A prolific writer and a powerhouse of an editor, he wrote or commissioned articles not just about appellate decisions and changes to the Mechanics Lien Act, but about dubious judges and the rate at which governing benchers were draining the wine-cellar at the Law Society of Upper Canada.
It was a novel approach, one born of Mr. FITZ- JAMES's dismay over prevailing notions of legal journalism. News coverage had hitherto been confined to lurid crime stories; judges and lawyers felt they had every right to shut their doors to scrutiny. The newspaper eventually went national, becoming The Lawyers Weekly. Mr. FITZ- JAMES left, briefly ran a legal database and the Law Times newspaper, then began a seven-year stint as editor of Canadian Lawyer, a magazine based in Aurora, Ontario
"For Mike, law and journalism were blood sport," said Jim MIDDLEMISS, a legal journalist who would ultimately write hundreds of articles for The Lawyers Weekly and Canadian Lawyer with Mr. FITZ- JAMES at the helm. "He thrived on the thrust and parry of a good legal argument, and relished the controversy that follows a good news story. But he was always fair, and his ethics were second to none."
Mr. MIDDLEMISS recently recorded an interview with him in which Mr. FITZ- JAMES reminisced about lawyers with his trademark, irreverent élan.
"In the 1980s, lawyers were a lot dumber than they are today," Mr. FITZ- JAMES said, his speech weakened by the latter stages of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. "There were a lot of middle-aged white men clogging the way in the Ontario legal profession. You had only to go to court and see them plead to realize you were in a real-life Rumpole of the Bailey. It was astonishing how low the standards were."
Creating a thriving newspaper for a community one ridicules so freely is no small feat. Yet Mr. FITZ- JAMES managed it because his provocative nature was tempered by a nose for news and a sincere love of the law itself. He was fond of describing himself as "a compassionate anarchist" whose tart-tongued criticisms were aimed at forcing the legal profession to live up to its lofty standards.
Throughout, Mr. FITZ- JAMES never lost his love of sensational stories. He turned it into a lucrative career, writing and broadcasting under the pseudonym Harold FISKE.
For 13 years, the FISKE character appeared weekly on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio's Basic Black show, interviewing psychics or U.F.O. spotters, and telling tales about quirky individuals. In 1999, Mr. FITZ- JAMES even wrote a book -- Hack Like Me -- as Harold FISKE. Accepting the Harvey Southam Editorial Career Award a couple of years ago, Mr. FITZ- JAMES insisted there was honour in even his oddest stories: "The abductees I wrote about were real people, and always faithfully quoted."
As a writer, Mr. FITZ- JAMES possessed a sweeping command of technical detail and developments. As a manager, he was a rare, real-life depiction of a figure largely invented by Hollywood screenwriters the volcanic newsroom editor who lives large in every way.
"He was a passionate, fiery, opinionated, curious man whose enthusiasm for his work never seemed to flag," Mr. MIDDLEMISS recalled. "Michael was also better informed about the law and legal developments than any other writer I have known in the field in the past 25 years."
Mr. FITZ- JAMES also delighted in being profane, provocative and challenging.
"As an editor, he was mercurial," said Mr. MILLER. "He was hard living, rampantly intelligent, outrageous for effect and his own amusement, funny, deeply read, fiercely loyal to his writers and Friends, and extremely gifted at getting out an interesting media product on a regular basis."
Mr. FITZ- JAMES took quiet pride in the central role he played in transforming legal coverage. Shortly before his death, he expressed satisfaction to Mr. MIDDLEMISS that the focus he had helped put on the legal system "has made law less arrogant and more accessible not just to lawyers, but to everybody."
At the same time, he never lost sight of the fleeting significance of journalism and its practitioners. In an epilogue to Hack Like Me, he wrote: "I avoid disappointments in life because I always expect to be fired next Thursday, fifteen minutes before quitting time."
Michael FITZ- JAMES was born on January 18, 1951, in London, Ontario He died of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, on March 27, 2005. He was 54. He is survived by his children Alec, Megan and Thea, and by their mother, Ruth. He also leaves his sisters Meriel, Bronwyn and Athlyn.
A memorial will be held today at 4: 30 p.m. at Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor St. W., in Toronto.

Dispute over woman cited in slaying
Man, 21, shot as children played nearby
By Henry STANCU and Betsy POWELL, Staff Reporters
A perceived slight over a woman may be behind the daylight fatal shooting of a 21-year-old man yesterday in a North York park as children played nearby.
"It was about disrespect," said a local resident who believes that scenario led to the man's death at Upwood Park, near Jane St. and Lawrence Ave. W., the latest in a string of fatal shootings this summer.
The resident said the shooter thought the victim had been "messing with his girl" and bragging about it.
The victim was Rommel MOLINA, who grew up and lived nearby in a Lawrence Ave. apartment building with his parents and siblings, Friends said. Police weren't confirming the victim's identity last night.
The victim's brother, believed to be 19, rushed to the scene after learning of the shooting. He fought back tears and leaned against a police vehicle for support before he was escorted away by police.
Friends with the victim when he was shot are co-operating with police, said duty Insp. Tom FITZGERALD of 12 Division.
"My understanding is they were just having a smoke," FITZGERALD said. "A dispute developed and there was a push, shove and a shot."
Police said late last night two men approached the victim and one of them pulled out a gun.
Earlier, a resident, who didn't want to be identified, said the gunman was on a bicycle that he wheeled into the park just after 5 p.m. The resident said the killer rode over to where the victim was standing, pulled a gun from his trousers and fired two shots, striking him once in the chest.
The gunman then calmly turned the bike around and rode "casually" out of the park, leaving the man sprawled on the vacant bocce court, the resident said, adding there were four kids in the park at the time.
Police were hunting for a gunman and a motive for the fatal shooting, the 34th of the year compared to 27 for all of 2004.
Efforts by emergency crews to revive the victim in the park failed and he was pronounced dead from an apparent gunshot wound to the chest.
Emergency Task Force officers and the canine unit searched nearby ravines and a string of parks that line Black Creek.
"Why did it happen to him?" said a shaken Steve SIMPSON, who arrived at the park near Marshlynn Ave. as the news of MOLINA's death spread quickly in the community.
"He was a good guy, and probably was just hanging out getting ready to go to work," he said, adding his friend of one year drove a forklift at a factory.
SIMPSON said he was unaware of MOLINA being embroiled in any kind of trouble.
Fred WALSH, a resident, said his daughter, who wasn't speaking to reporters but was interviewed by police, told him she was in the park with her three children when the shots rang out, sending them fleeing.

Man on oxygen tank dies after explosion
Was smoking in his apartment
Police say victim pulled fire alarm
By Louie ROSELLA, Torstar News Service
A 57-year-old Mississauga man was killed yesterday morning after the oxygen tank he was hooked up to in his Bloor St. apartment ignited and exploded while he smoked a cigarette.
The victim, David GRIGHTMIRE, was hooked up to the oxygen tank because he had emphysema, said his younger sister Margaret FITZGERALD, who lived with her brother along with another sister, Betty WILLIAMS.
Neither FITZGERALD nor WILLIAMS was home at the time of the explosion.
Mississauga fire officials are still investigating the exact cause of the blast.
An autopsy yesterday revealed GRIGHTMIRE, a father of one son, died from lung failure.
Peel Region police said GRIGHTMIRE managed to pull the fire alarm after the explosion, alerting tenants to evacuate the building.
"Even when he was dying, he was thinking about saving other people," said FITZGERALD.
"He was a good man right to the end."
Mississauga firefighters and Peel paramedics were called to the apartment building near Havenwood Dr. around 9: 30 a.m. following a number of minor explosions on the sixth floor.
A firefighter discovered GRIGHTMIRE without vital signs inside his sixth floor unit.
He was rushed to Trillium Health Centre and pronounced dead shortly after arrival.
Fire crews remained on scene for several hours trying to clear smoke from the building.
GRIGHTMIRE, a security guard and Mississauga resident for 40 years, was a member and past master of the Mississauga Masonic Lodge 524 in Port Credit.
His favourite hobbies were reading and doing crossword puzzles, said older brother Thomas GRIGHTMIRE.
GRIGHTMIRE's death should serve as a reminder to oxygen-tank users to be careful, the elder GRIGHTMIRE said.
Ontario's Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care said people on an oxygen system "must take precautions because oxygen aids combustion."
The provincial government warns oxygen users to keep oxygen systems away from sources of heat or open flame and not to smoke or let anyone else smoke in the area where they use oxygen.
