The appeals from the trial decision in Ward v. City of Vancouver et al. were argued on March 13 and 14, 2008 before three Justices of the British Columbia Court of Appeal. Judgment has been reserved. The case was brought after police refused to apologize to Cameron Ward for their conduct in arresting, strip-searching and imprisoning him after wrongly suspecting he might be involved in some kind of plot to attempt to throw a pie at the Prime Minister of Canada.

Brian Samuels appeared as counsel for Mr. Ward and Prof. Kent Roach was counsel for the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association, which had interbenor status.
