Remember Ashraf Azar, the former Concordia student who sued the university for $13.5 million after he was caught cheating and expelled?
No lawyers would take his case, saying it was “unwinnable,” and it turns out they were right. The Supreme Court of Canada has refused to hear his case.
Interesting to note, the courts did not deal with the merits of his case.
He was late in filing his paperwork with the court, and for that reason alone his case was dismissed.
The Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court only dealt with whether the deadline should have been waived because he was representing himself.
They decided rules are rules.
