(59)  No reinstatement of dismissed University Principal

On 14 June 1999 Glasgow Caledonian University won its appeal against a decision of an employment tribunal to order the reinstatement of its dismissed Principal, Professor Stan Mason. The University had already appointed a new Principal. The decision of the tribunal was described as perverse by Lord Coulsfield giving the opinion of the Employment Appeal Tribunal.
