Rob Ford Conflict of Appeal Win

Twitter reaction to Mayor Rob Ford's court victory

Twitter was unsurprisingly ablaze this morning as the verdict in Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's conflict of interest appeal was made public. Reaction ranged from bewilderment to despair to outright hilarity. There was even some cogent legal analysis thrown in for good measure. Even in the absence of a media leak prior to 10:30 a.m., the actual news had already populated Twitter streams while television networks like CP24 were fumbling over the legal documents unwilling to make a call on the verdict until it had already been widely reported elsewhere.

With news that Clayton Ruby plans to ask the Supreme Court of Canada for leave to appeal the result, this story might still have legs, but for now here's a roundup of some of the best early reaction to the decision on Twitter.
