Can a convicted person re-litigate the issues determined against him at the later civil hearing?

Alberta, Canada


The following excerpt is from Trang v. Alberta (Edmonton Remand Centre), 2002 ABQB 658 (CanLII):

The effectiveness of any evidence tendered by a party must be determined by the court, whether considered indisputable, rebuttable proof of the event or something less. For example, in Del Core v. Ontario College of Pharmacists, Finlayson J.A. held that the convicted person could not re-litigate the issues determined against him at the later civil hearing. Houlden J.A., though, decided that the evidence provided prima facie proof but that the convicted person could re-litigate his culpability.
