This was a predictable conclusion IMO - lying witnesses.

Actual National Post link:

Jian Ghomeshi found not guilty on all charges as judge acquits him of sexual assault, choking | National Post

“The act of suppression of the truth will be as damaging to their credibility as a direct lie under oath,” Horkins said.

it is not a domestic violence case though, there was absolutely nothing "domestic" about this charges or the "relationships" the charges arose from.

IMO it will be a gong show and nothing more than a publicity stunt for the actresses et al.

Toronto defence lawyer Joseph Neuberger expects the Crown would be concerned about what any witnesses didn’t tell them, but even if the Crown gets more information before the second trial, it would have to be disclosed to the defence.

More waste of tax-payors money IMO

I absolutely think Jian is a creep and guilty, his lawyer is awesome at schooling everyone in Law 101.

The last complainant, Kathryn Borel – quite brilliant, really.

Ghomeshi looked quite content with himself as he entered the court house yesterday, to enter his plea bargain and admit some vague apology for sexual misconduct.

I’m sure neither he nor Henein had considered that, immediately following the plea, Borel might appear on the front steps of the court house, and would publicly and crushingly re-accuse him for not only assaulting her, but also condemn him for assaulting 20 others. All of his hard work trying to recoup his professional reputation in the last year, all of his efforts to rebrand himself, all gone in one fell swoop.

His only recourse is to sue her for slander, in civil court, and at that point he loses all protections offered to him under the criminal court system. And he’d face a judge who would determine the case on the balance of probabilities, rather than ‘beyond a reasonable doubt’. I wonder what he will do.

Well played, Borel, well played.

Actually if you do some simply searches on Google you will find out why the crown dropped the charges. Borel went on record on a bunch of blogs and those silly podcasts and basically admitted to some stuff that would have made her look worse than the previous complainants.

Excellent listen. Read the articles linked on this youtube.

Good Luck!

I didn't Want to say anything (my point has been proven) but mcdreamy's post smacks of a person completely deluded by reality but I think we all knew that...
