KU Attorney Spars With appeals Court Judge in Expulsion Case

Associated Press - July 14, 2015 4:58 pm

An attorney for the University of Kansas has faced stiff questioning from an appeals court judge during a hearing on whether the school had the right to expel a student based on offensive tweets and off-campus incidents.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports former KU student Navid Yeasin was suspended in November 2013 for violating an order not to contact his ex-girlfriend in any way. Yeasin sued last year and a Douglas County judge ruled the school did not have jurisdiction to expel him.

The university appealed that decision to the Kansas Court of Appeals, and a three-judge panel heard arguments from both sides on Tuesday.

Judge Stephen Hill sparred with Trower over whether the school’s actions constituted prior restraint of speech.

The panel didn’t issue a ruling on Tuesday.
