SFU appeals Yeomans decision

Simon Fraser University will appeal a recent B.C. Supreme Court decision awarding damages to former security director Ralph Yeomans who was fired following an internal investigation.

Justice Lloyd Williamson ruled that the university conducted a flawed investigation into the incident and awarded Yeomans damages equivalent to 10 months worth of salary.

Yeomans was dismissed in January, 1995 after working at the university for five years as head of security. The university took action following a complaint related to an incident at a staff Christmas party during which Yeomans and his wife were involved in a physical altercation.
