ABSTRACT
The December, 1995 decisions of the Supreme Court of Canada in R. v. O'Connor and L.L.A.v.A.B. on release of personal records to defendants are disastrous for women and children who have been sexually violated and those who work with them. This paper comments on the procedures the Court establishes for disclosure to the trial judge and production to the accused, the Court's examples of relevant records, and how women's constitutional rights to equality and privacy figure into the decisions.
