Courts of Saskatchewan

There are three main courts in Saskatchewan:

Notable cases

In the Crown vs Stanley, presided by Saskatchewan Chief Justice Popescul, an all-white jury[32] acquitted local Battleford, Saskatchewan farmer Gerald Stanley on February 9, 2018. The jury found that the death of Colten Boushie, from the Cree Red Pheasant First Nation[33] occurred because of "hang fire".[34][35] Clint Wuttunee, Chief of the Red Pheasant First Nation, called the verdict "absolutely perverse".[32][36][34] Following the announcement of the acquittal, rallies and vigils took place across Canada.[37] The rally at the Saskatoon court attracted 1,000 people who supported Boushie's family and were frustrated by the jury's decision.[37] At a press conference on February 11, hosted by Saskatoon Tribal Council, Mayor Clark described the event as a "defining moment for this community and this country".[37]
