    "James Cook University is appealing the Brisbane Federal Circuit Court's finding that it contravened the Fair Work Act when it dismissed Peter Vincent Ridd in 2018.

    Freedom of expression and the interpretation of the university's code of conduct were the focus of the appeal submissions on Tuesday.

    The university's lawyer, Bret Walker SC, said the university was responsible for enforcing standards of behaviour to protect intellectual freedom and the code of conduct.

    Mr Walker said staff had the right to intellectual freedom and the right to express certain views but not bully, harass or intimidate others."

    Interesting to see how this goes. Ridd might not be so lucky this time around
