James Cook University has been ordered to pay marine physicist Peter Ridd more than $1.2 million in compensation after he was wrongly sacked.

Judge Vasta said Dr Ridd was entitled to speak and write without fear of retribution. The university intends to appeal the judgement using taxpayer funds. -GEG
