Student seeks to sue Concordia over expulsion

Student accused of forging professor’s signature


A Concordia student is asking Quebec Superior Court to delay his expulsion so that he may complete his course work and graduate. Charles Rossdeutcher, who was expelled in February is also hoping to sue the university for $100,000. Rossdeutcher is accused of forging a professor’s signature.

As reported in the Montreal Gazette:

The conflict began in February 2009, when Rossdeutcher was accused of forging a professor’s signature on a request form for a piece of equipment required for a team project as part of the course.

Though a Student Rights Panel heard the case and cleared the student in June of any wrongdoing, he was charged for essentially the same thing under the Academic Code of Conduct, which rendered a decision that led to the expulsion order.
