The People's Court: Leacock versus CyberSmokeBlog!

Welcome to The People's Internet De Defacto Court

Media Citizen Journalist/Blog Master The Honourable Clare L. Pieuk Presiding
"All please rise!"

The Judge: "Thank you. We are here today to consider the case of Leacock versus CyberSmokeBlog.

Exhibit "A"

From: Leacock, Jill []
Sent: Tue 6/12/20 11:10 AM

The Plaintiff

Mr. Pieuk:

If your are going to post correspondence authored by me on your blog, you should at least preserve the content of the letters written. The version that appears on your website has been altered.

K. J. Leacock, Law Officer
British Columbia Supreme Court

The Judge: "How say you Defendant Pieuk?"

"Well, Your Lordship, the correspondence in question was posted on at approximately 3:30 on the morning of Wednesday, June 6, 2012. As you can see Ms Leacock's e-mail is recorded as being received that same day approximately 7 1/2 hours later.

Further, at time of 'interneting' it bore the following message."

Exhibit "B"

Note to Readers:

An original copy of the above letter arrived as a file attachment. We have no doubt whatsoever of its authenticity. The problem arises transferring it into CyberSmokeBlog's image archive which we were unable to do trying a couple different formats.

Therefore, it was impossible to reproduce the original letterhead which displayed the Coat of Arms of the British Columbia Supreme Court and bore the address, The Law Courts 800 Smithe Street, Vancouver, B.C. Also, we could not duplicate Ms Leacock's original signature that appeared on the document

"It is the Defendant's position the content of the document in question (a letter from the aforementioned Leacock to Mr. Chris Budgell) was not altered at any material time in any material way. His home address had been deleted by him we assume for reasons of security.

We rest our case."

The Decision

The Judge: "Will the Defendent please rise.

In the face of the overwhelming evidence as contained in your "Exhibit B" plus the compelling arguments tendered, this Court has no choice but to rule in your favour."

The Defendent: "Thank you very much Your Honour!"

The Judge: "Oh, and one last thing Ms Leacock, please don't slam the door on your way out. Court adjourned!"
