Judge Karakatsanis (BA 1978 Vic) and Judge Moldaver (BA 1968 UC, LLB 1971) have been nominated to fill two Supreme Court of Canada vacancies. “Madam Justice Karakatsanis and Mr. Justice Moldaver are exceptional candidates who have the skills and qualifications necessary to serve Canadians as judges of the Supreme Court of Canada,” said Prime Minister Harper in a release. Justice Karakatsanis, a former civil servant, would be the Supreme Court’s first Greek-Canadian judge. Justice Moldaver, an Ontario appellate judge with vast experience in criminal law, will be particularly applauded in the law enforcement community.
