One of the officials fired from the First Nations University of Canada earlier this year has launched a lawsuit.


Dawn Tato was the dean and registrar at the university’s Regina campus before she was let go on July 20th.


According to a statement of claim, she is suing the school, board chair Morley Watson, university president Charles Pratt and university consultant Florence Watson.


Tato is seeking more than $50,000 in damages.


She claims she was fired without justification and without sufficient prior notice.


Her termination letter indicated that she breached a number of rules related to her position.
