SOPINKA, John, 1997 -- Died This Day
Monday, November 21, 2005, Page S11
Lawyer and judge was born in Broderick, Saskatchewan., on March After growing up in Hamilton, Ontario, he graduated from the University of Toronto, where he was a star halfback with the Varsity Blues. He later played with the Toronto Argonauts and Montreal Alouettes. His folksy manner and easy wit cloaked a sharp intellect that made him one of the country's top trial lawyers for nearly three decades. He was appointed to the Supreme Court in 1988 by prime minister Brian MULRONEY, who pulled him out of private practice. Among his celebrated cases as a lawyer was that of Susan NELLES, a nurse charged in the deaths of several infants at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children. She retained him to represent her in a civil action against the Ontario Attorney-General and Toronto police, alleging malicious prosecution. The Nelles suit was his most satisfying case. "A lawyer often gets well paid, but it is not every case where you feel you have really done something good for a human being."
