Provincial Court Judge Appointed in Estevan

Released on March 28, 2014

The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to announce the appointment of Lane Wiegers as a judge to the Provincial Court in Estevan.

“Judge Wiegers exemplifies the attributes we look for in the judiciary,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Gordon Wyant said.  “His criminal law experience over the past 22 years as a public servant and his dedication to the community make him an exceptional appointment to the bench.”

Judge Wiegers graduated from the College of Law at the University of Saskatchewan and was called to the Bar in 1992.  Since then, he has spent most of his career with the Ministry of Justice in Regina, first as a Crown Prosecutor, then as a Senior Crown Prosecutor.  In 2011, he was appointed as Director of Prosecutors for the province.  During his career, he has appeared at all levels of court.

Judge Wiegers has been involved in many professional associations and community activities.  He has a particular interest in refugee and immigration matters, which is evident through his involvement in Pro Bono Law and the Regina Open Door Society. 

Judge Wiegers replaces Judge Karl Bazin, who is transferring to the Provincial Court in Swift Current.
