How well does Rob Ford know this alleged drug dealer?
The reasons why Toronto Police pursued an investigation into Mayor Rob Ford's friend and occasional driver, Sandro Lisi, could become much more clear, depending on the result of an ongoing court battle.
Several media organizations are trying to gain access to the information police used to justify search warrants in Lisi's arrest.
The media lawyers will be given access to the information sheets on Monday but Justice Ian Nordheimer has yet to rule on what, if anything, in those documents can be released to the public.
One of the media lawyers says that typically the information for a drug search warrant is 3 or 4 pages.
In the Lisi case, it is 480 pages.
News outlets want to know if Rob Ford's name appeared in those documents and in what context.
