Canada: Woman Must Pay $24,000 To Man She Accused Of Rape, After Losing Appeal

Article here. Excerpt:

'After losing an appeal, an Ontario woman has to pay close to $24,000 to the man she maintains sexually assaulted her.

The man sued her in small claims court last fall after a sexual assault charge against him was dropped before trial. He said he was "humiliated and degraded" after the allegation, and lost his job, according to CBC News.

The woman was ordered to cover the cost of his legal expenses — $18,842 in legal fees and $5,000 in damages, The Toronto Star reported.

She appealed the Welland, Ont. ruling, with her lawyer Jonathan Collings arguing that the decision relied on inappropriate sexual stereotypes, said CBC.'
