Court dismisses $1.8m bullying case brought by man accusing boss of breaking wind


An Australian appeals court on Friday dismissed a bullying case brought by an engineer who accused his former supervisor of repeatedly breaking wind toward him.

But David Hingst, 56, has vowed to take his case to the high court.
