On Dec 17, 2013 Madam Justice Mary Anne Sanderson issued her finding on the Appeal launched by Jonathan Sommer seeking to overturn the devastating finding of Deputy Judge Paul J Martial, in March 2013, which totally dismissed the expertise, expert reports, and testimony of his only two witnesses, Donald Robinson of Toronto’s Kinsman Robinson Galleries, and his business associate, Conspiracy Theorist “enforcer” Ritchie Sinclair, and the claims of Jonathan Sommer, the lawyer for whom they testified.
Without a single caveat Judge Sanderson summarily dismissed one and all of Sommer’s objections to Martial’s devastating findings that impugned just about everything Sommer had put forward or claimed at trial.
She went on to concur entirely with Judge Martial’s findings about “Wheel of Life 1979,” that far from being a forged painting, with a forged signature – as claimed by Robinson, Sinclair and Sommer – that “Wheel of Life 1979” was an authentic Morrisseau and authentically signed by Morrisseau.
This makes it sixjudges in a row (Mogan 1996, Sexton 1999, Isaac1999, Godfrey 2011, Martial 2013, and Sanderson 2013) as well as the Globe lawyers in 2008, who have refused to accept Donald Robinson’s word as a credible evaluator of Morrisseau paintings.
Andsome eightjudges in a row (Lederer 2008, Godfrey 2011, McCrea 2012, Filkin 2013, Martial 2013, Lacavera 2013, Sanderson 2013, Kilian 2015) havefound Sinclair not to be credible or trustworthy on just about everything he claims.
