Lawyer suf­fers se­ri­ous in­juries in ex­plo­sion at Win­nipeg law firm

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CANADA -

Win­nipeg po­lice say they don’t know if an in­jured lawyer was the spe­cific tar­get of a bomb that ex­ploded at a fam­ily law firm in the city. But they don’t have any rea­son to be­lieve the de­vice rep­re­sents a dan­ger to the broader public or an at­tack on the jus­tice sys­tem at large. Po­lice con­firm lawyer Maria Mi­tousis was se­ri­ous in­jured in the blast at the Petersen King law of­fice. One source says the 35-yearold woman lost a hand in the blast and was in dan­ger of los­ing the other one. Other sources say Mi­tousis was in a com­mon-law re­la­tion­ship with Barry Gor­lick, a Win­nipeg lawyer who was re­cently dis­barred af­ter he ad­mit­ted to 15 counts of pro­fes­sional mis­con­duct.
