The former head of the Toronto District School Board could be in even more trouble.

Chris Spence was the Director of the TDSB, before resigning in January of 2013, amid a plagiarism scandal.

Now, his PhD thesis submitted to the University of Toronto, back in 1996 has come under fire.

Spence resigned when it was discovered that he'd copied some elements of a couple of newspaper articles he'd submitted.

Now, there are claims there are passages that have been plagiarized in that thesis, as well. 

The Globe and Mail says he's scheduled to appear before a university tribunal next month, to answer to the charges.

His lawyer wants the issue thrown out, claiming too much time has passed and that it has now become an abuse of process.

Spence has been finding it difficult to find executive work in both the US and Canada.
