Prof caught between neighbours and university

It's back to the courtroom for UBC Okanagan and four private homeowners on Curtis Road.

The case is all about a back-door access to the university.

Students and faculty have been using a private easement on Curtis Road and some homeowners who live there don't like that, and have taken UBC-O to court.
