More Ed Horne sex crime victims sue settlement lawyers Budden and Morris

Geoff Budden, shown here in this file photo, and Stewart Morris represented victims
of sex offender Ed Horne in lawsuits against the governments of Nunavut and
the Northwest Territories.
More victims of convicted sex offender Ed Horne have come forward to sue the lawyers who represented them in lawsuits against the territorial government, alleging their lawyers paid themselves more than they were entitled to from the settlements.

Horne worked as a teacher and principal in numerous communities in what was then the Northwest Territories but is now Nunavut between 1971 and 1985. He was later convicted of many sex-related crimes involving students, over two different trials.

Horne's victims sued the governments of Nunavut and the Northwest Territories, and received multi-million dollar settlements.

In August, 32 people came forward to sue Geoffrey Budden and Stewart Morris, lawyers from Newfoundland who had represented them in lawsuits.

Now, close to 100 plaintiffs from five different Nunavut legal settlements are suing Budden and Morris.  (more...)


Lawyers, suing lawyers. suing....
