Student Fights Twitter Post Expulsion

KSAL StaffNovember 3, 2014

A former University of Kansas student is fighting his expulsion over social media posts about his ex-girlfriend.

The university expelled Navid Yeasin in November 2013 for violating an order not to contact his ex-girlfriend in any way. Yeasin sued earlier this year and a Douglas County judge ruled in September that the school did not have jurisdiction to expel him.

Thhe university’s lawyer has filed a motion asking the court to reconsider its ruling and continue Yeasin’s expulsion until the judge rules.

The university cited its Student Conduct Code to expel Yeasin. The code says a student can be punished for incidents that occur while on campus or at university-sponsored events. Yeasin says the incidents that led to his expulsion didn’t occur on campus.
