A former Alberta justice minister has been found guilty of criminal contempt for threatening to sue a plaintiff in the middle of her testimony in a civil trial.

Court of Queen's Bench Justice Doreen Sulyma said Wednesday that a letter sent last week on behalf of Jonathan Denis was an attempt to intimidate Dr. Anny Sauvageau while she was testifying in her lawsuit against the Alberta government.

Sauvageau is accusing the government of wrongfully terminating her contract as chief medical examiner in 2014.
