Queen’s University and Queen’s Medicine department lead Dr Stephen Archer have filed a statement of defence against a $600K lawsuit filed by Dr Matt Strauss. Queen’s and Archer’s defence statement asserts that Strauss was not defamed as he claims in his lawsuit, that his resignation was planned so he would “receive as much income in advance and cause as much disruption as possible,” and that his disagreement with public health measures extended into his workplace. The defence states that Strauss’s position was not renewed due to funding issues and that he was encouraged to apply for a new position created at the school, which he did not do. CBC reports that none of the claims have been proven in court.
