Vancouver, June 27, 2017 –The Honourable Jody Wilson-Raybould, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, has announced that Warren B. Milman, partner at McCarthy Tétrault, has been appointed as judge of the Supreme Court of British Columbia in Vancouver. He replaces Madam Justice S.K. Balance who elected to retire December 31, 2016, effective immediately.
