An Australian man who claims he was bullied by a coworker’s frequent farting is taking it to court!
David Hingst says his ex-supervisoer would enter his small, windowless office and break wind “five or six times a day”. He says it caused him “severe stress” and claims it was part of a conspiracy to get him to leave.
Hingst sued his old engineering firm for $1.8 million in 2017 but the case was thrown out the following year. Now he’s appealing the verdict, with the Court of Appeal expected to give its ruling on Friday.
