Can't make this up… all the way to the Vic Supreme Court too.
Monash University student Chinmay Naik failed a video assignment about negative stereotypes around certain dog breeds in 2017 and failed again when it was re-marked.
Mr Naik had also taken his case to the Victorian Equal Opportunities and Human Rights Commission and the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal

"I've heard from other students who were subject to similar controversial practises," Mr Naik told reporters after representing himself in court on Monday.
"After hearing their stories I felt like I was not just fighting a case for myself. It was for all of them."
On top of the re-marking issue, he claims he didn't have time to complete the assignment as Monash was hesitant to grant special consideration on mental health grounds.
