QUT students must wait for 'racist' ruling

AAP logoAAP 5/08/2016

Three students who are asking the Federal Court to throw out an attempt by a teacher to sue them over allegedly racist comments on social media will have to wait until next week for the result.

Federal Circuit Court Judge Michael Jarrett was expected to make his ruling this week, but Tony Morris QC, who is acting for one of the students, told AAP he's yet to receive notification of when the decision will be handed down.

Queensland University of Technology's Cindy Prior alleges she was severely traumatised by Facebook posts from students responding to her action in preventing the men using QUT's Oodgeroo Unit, for indigenous students, in May 2013.
