The Ontario Court of Justice says Justice Bernd Zabel stopped hearing cases just before Christmas.

The incident raised concerns about his impartiality, and complaints about the incident were filed to the Ontario Judicial Council, a body that investigates the conduct of provincially appointed judges.

Zabel later called his behaviour a ”lapse in judgement,” and issued an apology to the courts, the bar and his colleagues.
