A nursing student who was expelled from the University of Louisville over her blog posts will not be reinstated this semester.
Nina Yoder’s attorneys filed for an injunction in March seeking reinstatement in time for Yoder to graduate in August. The hearing was set for Friday, but U of L requested that it be cancelled, saying that Yoder had missed too many classes to graduate on time.
Yoder’s attorney Garry Adams says her legal team is now seeking reinstatement in the fall and increased damages.
“It will include wages she would’ve earned during the period after she graduated as well as embarrassment humiliation and mental anguish from getting expelled from school,” he says.
Adams says he has not yet put a dollar figure on the damages. U of L says it cannot publicly discuss student cases because of confidentiality rules.
