 A victory for lawyers representing a group of media organizations -trying to unseal search warrants  that led to the “Project Traveller” arrests.

An Ontario  judge has ruled that documents related to police raids on buildings linked to the ongoing  Mayor Rob Ford controversy –  must be made available to media lawyers by Aug. 27th.

Crown prosecutors had originally asked the judge to withhold the information for at least six to nine months.

Lawyers representing organizations including  The Globe and Mail, the CBC and The Toronto Star had asked for the information to be released by July 11th -which is when many of the accused are due in court.

Lawyer Peter Jacobsen says the public deserves to know if the documents present any  connection to Mayor Rob Ford.

 The  buildings on Dixon Road in Etobicoke  have been under intense media scrutiny after it was reported recently that an alleged video of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine may have been recorded in one of the buildings.
