Justice Robin’s decision to call it quits follows a recommendation by a disciplinary panel that reviewed the original sexual assault trial of Alexander Wagar. Court transcripts from the 2014 trial in Calgary, Canada, show that Camp, who was a provincial court judge at the time, called the complainant “the accused” numerous times and told her “pain and sex sometimes go together.”

The complainant, while recounting her ordeal had told the court that she was raped for about 20 minutes in a bathroom where she had gone to relieve herself during a house party.

It should be kept in mind that Only two judges have been recommended for removal by the Canadian Judicial Council — a group of federally appointed judges tasked with investigating complaints about their peers — since it was created in 1971. In both cases, the judges resigned before the recommendations made it to Parliament, which ultimately decides whether or not to dismiss a Canadian judge.
