Wrongful dismissal suit by
The Tyee EIC has been settled

A settlement has been reached in a wrongful dismissal suit launched last month by the former editor-in-chief of the online magazine The Tyee, Jane Armstrong. against Countercurrent Media Ltd., its owner. She was in the post a mere nine months and was fired May 28. She has been replaced by managing editor Robyn Smith. 

Armstrong's statement of claim described the company's actions in firing her after she moved across the country to take over the top editorial job as “high-handed, malicious, arbitrary, or highly reprehensible”, but the matter was settled quite quickly. 

Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
