Ontario's highest court has acquitted a man who pleaded guilty in the death of his infant son because of testimony from now-disgraced pathologist Charles Smith.

Both the Crown and defence asked the justices to acquit Richard Brant, with the Crown conceding there was a miscarriage of justice.

On Wednesday the Ontario Court of Appeal set aside the conviction and ordered Brant acquitted.

Brant was charged with manslaughter in 1993 in the death of his two-month-old baby's death and eventually pleaded guilty to aggravated assault.

A pathologist listed pneumonia and respiratory failure as causes of death but Smith examined the case and concluded the boy likely died from shaken baby syndrome.

The Crown said today Grant's plea was affected by Smith's reputation which no longer stands.

Smith was once considered an expert on child forensic pathology but an inquiry found that errors in his work were responsible for several people being wrongfully convicted and sent to prison.

His medical licence was revoked earlier this year.

Ontario's Highest Court can also live in shame.

The Ontario Court of Appeal is the enforcer of Male Sharia Law.

Despite half the professional parents being mothers and the father's stay at home dads, the number of men, who end up receiving spousal support is probably less than the fingers on one hand in the entire province.

Legal Commentators have noted that its unheard of for a man to get spousal support from a woman. Its a LEGAL TABOO.

Another legal taboo enforced by the Court of Appeal is for COSTS, costs are awarded against MEN, when they win, and when they lose. women generally get their costs regardless of winning or losing with some exceptions where the lawyer has some conflict with one of or all of the judges.

The worst Man Hater on the Court of Appeal, the worst record of Judicial Abuse of Power is Madam Justice Feldman who as a result of her incredible record of decisions , that flagrantly abuse her judicial discretion, she is probably next in line for the Supreme Court of Canada.

Remember, it takes a dead beat judge to create a dead beat dad, and the worst dead beat judges get promoted to the Court of Appeal to continue their Male Sharia law, their Male Gender Apartheid and their ongoing war on men that results in Ontario Jails being turned into concentration camps for me whose only crime, was feminist heresy of being a father.

Enough is enough.
