    Law Society cautions against use of Canadian Lawyer Index

    http://www.lsuc.on.ca/latest-news/a/...-lawyer-index/

    Since 2000, the Law Society has received numerous complaints from lawyers and members of the public about CanLaw, CLI and J. Kirby Inwood. The complaints relate to communications received from CanLaw, CLI or J. Kirby Inwood which are offensive and expose the recipients of the communications to hatred, contempt, abuse and obscenities. The following are examples of such communications:
    "You are a sick, hate male sexist bigot who is definitely trying to restrict my freedom to express my opinion.
    Women like you are monsters who take and take and take."
    "You are a fool and a bigot".
    "STEP [sic] TELLING US WHAT TO DO IMMEDIATELY YOUR HIGHNESS. WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE YOU ARROGANT, CONCEITED *****1 [sic]"
    "WoW! Both a pig and a rat.
    Utterly contemptible."
    "Look you pompous power made two bit flunky, we do not take orders from the likes of you."
    In order to avoid the possibility of abusive comments such as the foregoing, the Law Society suggests that lawyers not reply to any e-mail or other communications from CanLaw or CLI.
    A referral service that facilitates public access to lawyers' services should reflect credit on the administration of justice and the legal profession. The Law Society does not believe CanLaw or CLI is such a referral service and advises lawyers not to use the service.
    Members can contact the Law Society at 416-947-3315.
