Bias - Judge's Prior Professional Involvement

. Rebello v. Bank of Nova Scotia

In Rebello v. Bank of Nova Scotia (Ont CA, 2023) the Court of Appeal considered a bias fact scenario:
[2] The appellant raises a reasonable apprehension of bias argument based on the motion judge’s partnership in the law firm representing the respondent. That partnership ended at least 15 years before the motion judge heard this claim. In our view, that very tenuous connection provides no basis for a finding of a reasonable apprehension of bias.
