Two WLU professors sue Shepherd over publication of disciplinary meeting recording

January 3, 2019

Nathan Rambukkana and Herbert Pimlott, the two Wilfrid Laurier University professors beingsued by Jordan Petersonfor their comments during a disciplinary meeting withLindsay Shepherd in 2017, have alleged that Shepherd should be held responsible for any damages stemming from the broader publication of the meeting's content. According to the Canadian Press, a third-party claim filed by the professors states that the pair did not know their comments would be recorded and distributed by Shepherd. The pair further allege that Shepherd had “power and control” over the recording, and that Peterson should therefore sue Shepherd for any damages to his reputation resulting from comments made during the meeting. Howard Levitt, Shepherd’s lawyer, stated that the allegations make no sense, as the recording was also shared by media outlets. None of the allegations have been proven in court. Ottawa Citizen(CP)(ON)
