A part-time image arts student is suing the Chief Returning Officer of the recent Ryerson Students’ Union election.
Frank Nyitray is suing Hakim Kassam for $100, 000 alleging defamation, libel, slander and vilification.
The suit was filed and served on Feb. 9.
Kassam has been advised by his lawyers not to comment.
Nyitray, who is representing himself, is currently involved in a number of other lawsuits.
He and previous VP Equity candidate Donna Ryder filed suits against the RSU, the Palin Foundation, the
general manager of the Student Campus Centre and the Continuing Education Students at Ryerson
(CESAR) on Jan. 28. Those suits amass a total of $800, 000 and are not yet resolved.
Nyitray would not comment on circumstances that required a lawsuit because the information is evidentiary.
