Defence lawyer Miguna Miguna’s recent shot at Toronto police earned the fast-talking legal eagle a spot of trouble with the Law Society of Upper Canada — thanks to a complaint by the Toronto police union.

Recently, Miguna said publicly that emergency task force officers involved in the New Year’s Eve shooting death of Henry Masuka — whose family Miguna is representing in a civil suit — had no grounds for shooting the man. At the time, Masuka was holding a doctor at St. Michael’s Hospital hostage with a replica handgun.

The union demanded an apology for Miguna’s “inaccurate and inflammatory” comments. The Law Society decided to shelve the union’s complaint instead. Union legal head Martin Weatherall says he’s exploring other options. “He’s sensationalizing.”

Miguna says the union is trying to bully and intimidate its critics.

“The gall,” he says.
