Gender Bias in Family Law at the
Court of Appeal Ontario 2007
Apr 2006, Revised Sept 2007
Part I Judicial Decisions on Family Law Cases
In this section family law decisions have been evaluated for individual appellate judges. Appeal issues have been classified into 7 general family categories. A single appeal may involve more than one issue and therefore receive multiple entries. It may also involve cross appeals by the opposing spouse. Costs refers to costs of the appeal. If costs of lower court rulings are a primary appeal issue they have been included in the category of other. Since the costs of the appeal represents a secondary discretionary ruling by the court, it has been given extended analysis in both magnitude and application. Summaries of the data can be found on pages 28. A full listing of the cases and decisions are given in appendixes A1 to A26 starting on page 58.
For Justice Abella, 53 family cases were available, and 51 of them had data on cost penalties. 21 appeals were innitiated by females and 32 appeals by males. 4 cross appeals were brought by women and 3 by men. The cases and their outcomes can be found in Appendix A1. A summary of the decisions is as follows
