Ryan Millet, Dalhousie student in Facebook scandal, will return to disciplinary hearing
Dentistry student appeared before a disciplinary hearing last week at Halifax university
The lawyer for a Dalhousie University dentistry student says his client has agreed to return to a disciplinary hearing investigating his role in a Facebook page that contained sexually violent content aimed at his classmates.
In a letter to the university's senate, Bruce MacIntosh says Ryan Millet is willing to continue with the hearing before the school's academic standards committee Wednesday even though MacIntosh believes the process is flawed.
MacIntosh has said that even though Millet helped expose the Facebook page, he was nonetheless stripped of clinical privileges and is facing disciplinary measures for alleged unprofessional conduct.
He is one of 13 male students accused of being part of a private Facebook group where sexist and misogynistic comments about female classmates were posted.
Millet's disciplinary hearing began last Tuesday but was adjourned after MacIntosh complained about unfairness.
MacIntosh says if the committee decides to impose disciplinary measures and maintain the suspension, he will ask the senate to "explore other options."
