A federal court quashed the Gomery Inquiry conclusions that former prime minister Jean Chretien and his top aide bore responsibility for the sponsorship scandal. Justice Max Teitelbaum ruled on June 27th that Gomery's inappropriate comments to the media throughout the hearings into the scandal betrayed bias against Chretien and his chief of staff, Jean Pelletier (PELL'-tyay).
