How is Ford's Appeal Going to Work?
So when it comes to the legal side of Mayor Ford's case, what comes next?
Could it be possible that the case is dragged out through the courts for years?
In a word, no.
John Mascarin is a partner with Aird and Berlis in Toronto and he says when Ford files an appeal, the divisional court is the final place the case can be heard.
He says what they say, goes.
"Unlike other court cases," Mascarin says, "there is a statute that says you can appeal to the divisional court and that decision is final."
Ford has indicated he's going to file an appeal on Wednesday, December 5th and his lawyer has confirmed to Newstalk1010, that the appeal should be heard starting on January 7th.
