Former CFL commissioner Michael Lysko will be back in court.

Lysko, who is seeking a total of $5.2 million from various teams and people associated with his dismissal in March, 2002 after only 16 months into his three-year contract, will be in the Ontario Court of Appeal today.

Lysko's lawyer, Gary Hodder, is arguing a decision rendered last November by Superior Court Justice of Ontario judge Wailan Low, who granted the defendants a motion to dismiss the suit.

Low said: "The pleading in its present form is monstrously unwieldy and does not coherently set out the case the defendants have to meet."

Lysko, the director of sports and recreation services of the University of Western Ontario, told The Sun yesterday: "I believe I'm not in the position to comment on the proceedings, but I believe in the system and I'm looking forward to my day in court."
