- Each nomination must be accompanied by three letters of support from CBA members stating reasons for the candidate's nomination;
- The full name, business & home address, telephone, fax and e-mail information of both the nominee and the three nominators shall be included with the nomination.
It would be interesting to find out who provided the three letters of support from CBA members. Are they other WT lawyers such as Glen How &Associates?
Recently it has come to my attention that Lawrence Hughes' lawyer was making inquiries as to the relationship between Glen How& Associates and the Canadian branch of the WT Society. It seems they wanted this information for the ongoing civil litigation that is going on.
My question is: Have other WT lawyers who are members of the CBA recommended Shane Brady for the pro bono award in order to distance the WT from any suspicion of behind the scenes influence in the Bethany Hughes case? I cannot believe that any lawyer working to promote the beliefs of a religious organisation and being paid expenses to do so should be considered as working pro bono for the general welfare of the public.
