York U lawsuit over strike dismissed

September 10, 2010

An Ontario Superior Court judge has dismissed a motion to certify a $250-million class-action lawsuit against York University for damages arising from the 3-month strike in 2008-09. In a decision released last Thursday, the judge ruled that the student who was the representative plaintiff did not have the evidence to support his claims that when York U shut down during the strike, it breached its duty to students or caused them to suffer.
