Attempt to Unseat Ford Going to Court

Mayor Rob Ford is facing some opposition - but this time isn't at council. It'll be in court. It all began back when he was a councillor. He asked some lobbyists at city hall to contribute to his football charity - which they did. But he appears to have contravened conflict of interest rules. And he compounded the problem last month when he spoke in council in his own defence. The problem though isn't WHAT he said in that speech. It's that he said anything at all. And then voted on a matter that directly affected his own future. That - at least - is what Clayton Ruby will be arguing. He's representing Pauol Magder, the man who brought suit. And he joined Here and Now to explain his strategy. First though, we heard some of the February speech that triggered the lawsuit. Listen audio (runs 6:54)
