Case Report – BCCA dismisses claim about disclosure of student status

One June 3rd, the British Columbia Court of Appeal dismissed a breach of privacy claim brought by a former student of the University of British Columbia. The student claimed the University breached the British Columbia Privacy Act by alleging that its legal counsel told the media he was no longer a student. The Court held that the student’s action disclosed no reasonable claim because the information claimed to be private had been lawfully disclosed in two previous court decisions.
