TORONTO, Jan. 25 /CNW/ - In the wake of the Ontario government's failure
to acquire a unanimous consensus regarding the passage of the York University
back-to-work legislation, the law offices of Juroviesky and Ricci LLP have
filed a class action lawsuit in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice against
York University alleging class wide violations of various statutory and common
law duties to the students of York University.
The suit claims that the students of York University are entitled to a
refund of the students' tuition and other fees paid to York, and for damages
(direct and indirect) for losses suffered by students enrolled in full and
part time programs at York University for the Fall/Winter 2008/2009 semester.

practical option the students have for immediate relief and the possibility to
salvage their academic track is via the court system through this class
