Deputy police chief’s arbitration hearing in Dennis Oland case delayed a year

Deputy Saint John police chief Glen McCloskey’s arbitration hearing in relation to alleged misconduct in the Dennis Oland murder case has been bumped back by more than a year.

McCloskey was scheduled to appear before an arbitrator appointed by the New Brunswick Police Commission on Friday, but his lawyer requested the Police Act matter be set over until after Oland’s retrial in the 2011 bludgeoning death of his father, multimillionaire Richard Oland.

Oland’s lawyers “noted” the adjournment in the McCloskey arbitration “with a great deal of interest,” said family lawyer Bill Teed.

Deputy police chief’s arbitration hearing in Dennis Oland case delayed a year

Saint John Police Force Deputy Chief Glen McCloskey’s arbitration hearing in connection with the second-degree murder trial of Dennis Oland has been bumped back by more than a year.

McCloskey was scheduled to appear before an arbitrator appointed by the New Brunswick Police Commission on Friday, but his lawyer requested the Police Act matter be set over until after Oland’s retrial in the 2011 bludgeoning death of his father, multimillionaire Richard Oland.

“A recent conversation between the Deputy Attorney General’s office and the Commission’s representative has led the Commission to conclude that it is now in the best interest of justice to agree with Deputy Chief McCloskey’s request to adjourn the arbitration hearing to a date after the evidence in the second Oland murder trial has been completed,” the commission’s executive director Steve Roberge confirmed in an email to CBC News.

Crown seeks leave to appeal overturning of Dennis Oland’s murder conviction

Crown prosecutors say they will ask the Supreme Court of Canada to review the New Brunswick Court of Appeal’s decision to overturn Dennis Oland’s second-degree murder conviction in the 2011 bludgeoning death of his father, multimillionaire Richard Oland.

Prosecutor Kathryn Gregory revealed the Crown’s decision to seek leave to appeal to the country’s highest court on Tuesday in Saint John’s Court of Queen’s Bench.

She did not explain the grounds, but told Justice William Grant the Crown expects to file its application on Jan. 22, 10 days after the New Brunswick Court of Appeal is expected to release its detailed written reasons for its Oct. 24 decision to quash Oland’s conviction and order a new trial based on a “fundamental flaw” in the trial judge’s instructions to the jury.

A date for Oland’s new trial was expected to be set on Tuesday, but scheduling has now been adjourned
