Ching v. University of Windsor

(No. 2519/84)

Indexed As: Ching v. University of Windsor

Ontario Divisional Court

Van Camp, Potts and McKinlay, JJ.

April 13, 1984.

Summary:

A university student was found guilty of misconduct by a university senate committee for having written an examination for another person, and was expelled. The student applied to quash the committee's decision. The Ontario Divisional Court upheld the expulsion, but remitted the matter of penalty to a differently constituted panel of the committee, because natural justice was breached by failing to give the student an opportunity to be heard respecting the penalty.
