Christopher Hugh Moore (b. 1950, Stoke-on-Trent, England).

"In Christopher Moore's lively and engaging history of the Court of Appeal for Ontario, he traces the evolution of one of Canada's most influential courts from its origins as a branch of the lieutenant governor's executive council to the post-Charter years of cutting-edge jurisprudence and national influence.

Discussing the issues, personalities, and politics that have shaped Ontario's highest court, 'The Court of Appeal for Ontario' offers appreciations of key figures in Canada's legal and political history -- including John Beverley Robinson, Oliver Mowat, Bora Laskin, and Bertha Wilson -- and a serious examination of what the right of appeal means and how it has been interpreted by Canadians over the last two hundred years. The first comprehensive history of the Ontario Court of Appeal, Moore's book is the definitive and eminently readable account of the court that has been called everything from a bulwark against tyranny to murderers' row.".
