Surprise! Surprise! Surprise! Judge dismisses case against 2 Ont. Liberals accused of bribery

A judge has tossed a case against Ontario Liberals Patricia Sorbara and Gerry Lougheed Jr., accused of violating the Elections Act in the lead up to the 2015 byelection in Sudbury.

Justice Howard Borenstein granted a directed verdict application requested by the defence that called for the charges to be dismissed before the defence called any witnesses.
