After a sexual assault victim secured a conviction against her ex-husband, she shared the court transcript with family. A judge fined the Ontario woman more than $2,000 for breaking a publication ban on her own name. We discuss the case with Colin Westman, a retired Ontario court judge in Kitchener-Waterloo; Emilie Taman, an Ottawa lawyer and co-host of the podcast The Docket; and Bekah D'Aoust, a sexual assault survivor who made the decision to have the publication ban lifted in her case.
