Sen. Mike Duffy has lost his bid to overturn a court decision blocking him from suing the Senate for millions of dollars over his suspension without pay.

The Ontario Court of Appeal upheld a 2018 lower court ruling that said the Senate's decision to suspend Duffy is protected by parliamentary privilege.

In a unanimous ruling released Friday, the three-judge panel said the courts do not have jurisdiction to rule on matters decided by the Senate.
