Torys is very proud to announce that Michael A. Penny has been appointed as a Judge of the Superior Court of Justice of Ontario in Toronto.
"We congratulate Michael on this great honour," says Torys' managing partner Les Viner. "Michael has shown himself to be a brilliant, creative legal thinker; a tireless and effective advocate; a business-like pragmatist with a strong penchant for social justice; a loyal, committed and collegial partner and friend; and a good-natured, funny wit. He will be a great asset to the Bench."
Michael replaces Madam Justice T.M. Dunnet, who was elected to become a supernumerary judge as of November 2, 2009.
