Student expelled for plagiarism takes Concordia to court

Quebec Superior Court asked to order new disciplinary hearing


 

A Concordia University student who was expelled in 2004 for plagiarism is taking the school to court. Ashraf Azar, who failed to win a previous $15 million lawsuit against Concordia in 2007, wants Quebec Superior Court “to order the university to grant him a new disciplinary hearing on the plagiarism charges that got him kicked out in the first place,” Canadian University Press reported. Azar alleges that he was expelled “due to what can only be seen as discriminatory motivated ‘errors’ [emphasis in the original] committed by his professors with respect to his grades,” his statement of claim reads. He also says that he was “coerced” into confessing to the plagiarism charges in exchange for lenient punishment. A hearing is set for Jan 20. Azar will be representing himself.
