In a decision released Monday afternoon, Justice William Chalmers ruled that changes made to the Scarborough-Agincourt councillor's campaign financial statements that caused him to be automatically ousted from his council seat earlier this month had been made "inadvertently," as Karygiannis's lawyer Sean Dewart had argued in court.

"I guess I'm going back to work," a very relieved-sounding Karygiannis said after the Star informed him of the ruling. He said he had been waiting for his lawyer to give him the news.

"I'm going to be happy to be back to serving my constituents."
