Court prepares for James Cook U’s appeal against the Ridd judgement

JCU has delivered on its promise to appeal the Federal Court decision that it breached the university enterprise agreement in sacking Dr Ridd

JCU argued unsuccessfully that he breached its code of conduct in his criticism of research at the university on the condition of the Great Barrier Reef.

The Federal Court has ordered that $1m of the $1.2m Dr Ridd was awarded be held in trust until the university’s appeal is determined. The balance of $215 000 is to be held for Dr Ridd’s costs in the appeal.
