Fierce and forthright judge made practicality and principle his mark
When it came to standing up for precept over ideological fashion, the Ontario Court of Appeal judge had no peer. He could not abide sham or mediocrity, and that attracted a legion of admirers
By Kirk MAKIN, Page S10
Toronto -- There couldn't have been more than a handful of appellate lawyers in Ontario who were unaware that Mr. Justice George FINLAYSON had a low tolerance level for unprepared or long-winded lawyers. Unfortunately, one of them was arguing a complicated commercial case several years ago before the Ontario Court of Appeal's crustiest member.
As the hapless counsel droned on through a hit-and-miss series of legal points, the courtroom began to feel like a village built on the edge of Mount Etna. Finally, Judge FINLAYSON could take no more: "What I'd like to find out is: What should I be doing with my mind while you are talking?" he exploded.
Recounting the scene, a former colleague - Mr. Justice Sydney ROBINS - said it was a classic FINLAYSON moment: "George had a low boiling point. He had little patience with incompetence and unprepared counsel."
Gruff, prickly, impatient - all are words that applied to George FINLAYSON. His testy nature, however, was the product of a man who could not abide sham or mediocrity. When it came to standing up for principle over the ideological fashions of the day, he had no peer - and it built him a legion of admirers during his 12 years on the bench.
Raised in Ottawa, Mr. FINLAYSON graduated from the University of Toronto's law school in 1951 and joined a Toronto powerhouse known as McCarthy and McCarthy. He soon joined the ranks of a handful of legendary litigators who dominated the city's legal scene - men whose names are still uttered with reverence: J.J. Robinette, Walter Williston, John Brooke, Charles Dubin and Douglas Laidlaw. His clients ranged from fraudsters and hockey players to the government of Quebec, which he helped to win a mammoth lawsuit against Newfoundland involving power from Churchill Falls.
"He was noted for his unvarnished advice and fearless advocacy," Mr. ROBINS said.
Appointed to the Court of Appeal in 1990, Judge FINLAYSON brought a keen awareness of the practical effects of court rulings on the practice of law, a remarkable work ethic, and a writing style that was clear and focused.
"A lot of judges might reach the same conclusions but would couch them in more circuitous terms," said Tom HEINTZMAN, a lawyer at Mr. FINLAYSON's former firm. "George had the courage of his convictions, and he was prepared to set them down in an unvarnished way. When there was something he disagreed with, he would stand there like Horatio on the bridge."
A slight and slender man, Mr. FINLAYSON also embraced new technology, had an enormous appetite for work, and appreciated law clerks who were not afraid to edit his writing.
Practicality and principle were the hallmark of his rulings. In one case, he overturned a decision that had found a car-parts company responsible for a highway accident caused by an employee who was secretly drinking on the job. "The notion that an employer&hellip has a duty to monitor its employees to determine if it is safe for them to drive home is novel in the extreme," he said.
He maintained a particularly wary eye for social injustice, excessive damage awards, and judges who imposed unfairly harsh sentences on individuals in the hope of deterring other, would-be criminals.
"My father was a very black-and-white person," said his son, Blair. "Something might not be good law, but it was the law - so don't whine about it. He made up his mind quickly, but he wasn't stubborn. If you gave him a good argument, he had no problem admitting that he had been wrong."
A champion of criminal rights, Judge FINLAYSON was sufficiently pragmatic to allow police to seize hairs from suspects for DNA testing. In a similar realistic vein, he reduced excessive damage awards and spoke out against legal-aid funding being given indiscriminately to the children of wealthy or middle-class parents.
Most notably, however, he helped launch a wave of skepticism about the role of soft science and expert witnesses: from marginal fields.
In a 1997 ruling, he declared that jurors were quite capable of reaching conclusions without the aid of a psychologist, and castigated his fellow judges for abdicating their responsibility to reach conclusions without being propped up by purported experts.
He was particularly irked by the evidence in historical sexual assaults, some of it drawn out by therapists who employed dream theories. "The criminal courts need a new gatekeeper," he railed in one such case. "Parliament and the judiciary have radically eroded the traditional protection available to the accused in sexual assault cases."
Frank ADDARIO, president of the Criminal Lawyers Association, said these sentiments showed Mr. FINLAYSON to be "a judge with strong attachment to the bedrock principles of the criminal law. He liked the adversary system and its closed set of rules, and he continually reminded lawyers about the basic rules of evidence, proof and cross-examination in criminal cases."
But these rulings annoyed prosecutors, whose job it is to deal with victims and assemble evidence. They were equally put off by Judge FINLAYSON's regular declarations that prosecutors must be less keen to secure convictions.
He was equally caustic about lawyers attaching themselves to causes. In 1980, as treasurer of the Law Society of Upper Canada, he urged new lawyers to represent nothing but their client's interest - and to turn no prospective client away.
"You are not obliged, and indeed, you must not, act as a mouthpiece for an individual or his cause," he said. He also scoffed at the idea that some lawyers specialize in "civil rights," calling it a pompous, pious notion that infers that other lawyers are unconcerned about freedom and liberty.
He was from the old school of mentoring, Mr. HEINTZMAN said. "He wasn't about to mollycoddle anyone. We might be chewed out, but those who stuck it out learned lessons we never forgot."
In his life outside the courtroom, Mr. FINLAYSON loved spending time at the family cottage near Peterborough, Ontario Clad in eccentric recreational outfits, he was widely known to be far from expert at the helm of his sizable motorboat. "Stories are legion of him crashing it into docks," Mr. HEINTZMAN said. Indeed, there were few takers whenever he offered rides, and several neighbours had implored Mr. FINLAYSON never to approach their dock.
Mr. FINLAYSON also had a passion for the Toronto Blue Jays, the Ottawa Rough Riders, his dogs, and the company of a select group of male Friends with whom he exchanged legal gossip and spirited debate.
He was a decided family man, albeit not an overly demonstrative one. "If you did a great job on something, my father's way of showing love and affection was to give you a firm handshake and a pat on the back," said Blair, who went on to take up electrical engineering and to run his own company.
A watershed point in Mr. FINLAYSON's career occurred in 1989, when an article in Canadian Lawyer magazine ranked him among the worst judges in the country on account of his temper, irascibility and a tendency to prejudge matters.
Based on a handful of anonymous critics, the ranking was far from scientific. Still, some Friends detected a change. The judge tried to curb his in-court sniping. A moderate drinker, he quit cold turkey.
Another important personal event occurred in 2004 when he published John J. Robinette, Peerless Mentor: An Appreciation, an unusual hybrid that was part memoir and part biography.
He believed fervently that the best decisions are written almost immediately, when legal arguments are fresh in a judge's mind and his reactions to them crackle with energy. He would invariably return to his chambers from the courtroom and set about writing his ruling, often polishing off the bulk of it in two or three hours.
His son said this technique had the added virtue of giving him a jump on everyone else: "He could get his slant in on it."
Mr. FINLAYSON, who retired in 2002, probably summed up his philosophy best in an interview several years ago: "My whole approach is to be a problem solver. I don't have an agenda. I don't favour the Charter or adopt a conservative approach. I don't favour the Crown or the defence. I just look at every case as something that has to be dealt with properly."
George Duncan FINLAYSON was born in Winnipeg on November 4, 1927. He died in Toronto of a heart attack on March 23, 2008, while out walking his dog. He was 80. He is survived by his wife, Joan, and by his children Margot, Blair and Sheelah. He also leaves his grandchildren Cameron, Ben, Riley, Josh, Fraser and Geordie.
