A prominent Alberta criminal defence lawyer has successfully sued the Edmonton Police Association for $50,000 after one of its former directors wrote a defamatory article about him.
Queen’s Bench Justice Avril Inglis ruled in lawyer Thomas Engel’s favour after Engel brought a lawsuit against the police union for an article posted on its website in 2008. Engel said the piece damaged his reputation as a lawyer, as it accused him of incompetence and dishonesty, and implied he had a vendetta against the police.
Engel’s practice regularly involves policing issues. He often defends people who claim to have been wronged by police and has not shied away form making complaints about alleged police wrongdoing to the Law Enforcement Review Board.
