Former CBC media personality Jian Ghomeshi is attempting to put his life back on track after being found not-guilty last year in a high profile case where 3 women alleged he sexually assaulted them.
A prominent Toronto newspaper - The Toronto Star - played a major role in the case being brought to Trial after a long investigation of salacious rumours of a "media stars" proclivities favouring "rough sex".
The Star's reporters tracked down the three women involved, interviewed them, facilitated interactions among them and practically challenged the Toronto Police to follow-up and lay charges at the same time as detailing events for readers.
By the time the trial began Ghomeshi had been fired from his daily CBC radio program and had practically been "hung, drawn and quartered" in the media by feminists groups across the country. Further inflaming feminists ire was fact Ghomeshi was being represented by a well-regarded, female Defense counselor named Marie Henein.
As it turned out Henein's job of dismissing the charges were remarkably easy given that the Plaintiffs perjured themselves and then colluded amongst themselves to frame Ghomeshi for the non-crime of consensual sex.
"DeCoutere and Redgrave revealed themselves at trial to be at best unreliable and at worst to be complete strangers to the truth."
What remains is the media's complicity in masterminding a witch-hunt that unnecessarily ruined a man's life, incited feminist groups to remain in "high dungeon" for over two years and wasted untold Court time, Law Enforcement resources and taxpayer funds.
