A transgender man removed from the St. Albert Catholic school district’s substitute teacher roster has lost his latest bid to have a human rights tribunal hear his discrimination complaint.

In a written decision Friday, the Alberta Court of Appeal upheld earlier decisions by an Alberta Human Rights Commission tribunal and the Court of Queen’s Bench that a tribunal can’t hear Jan Buterman’s complaint because he agreed to a settlement with the school board.

Buterman said he never agreed to the terms of the settlement, and accepted no money from the school board.
