The Thomas Cromwell Pages

cromwell.pngMr. Justice Thomas A. Cromwell of the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal has been nominated by Prime Minister Harper to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court of Canada. The Office of the Commissioner for Federal Judicial Affairs has not yet put together a website on Mr. Justice Cromwell, as it did for the last Supreme Court nominee, Mr. Justice Rothstein.

Slaw is doing research into Mr. Justice Cromwell’s professional background and will continue to edit and expand these pages as more information becomes available about this most recent nominee for appointment to our highest court.
