A Quinnipiac University student is suing the school over his suspension.
The student received a letter from the school on Nov. 11 claiming he was a threat to himself, others and school property, according to court documents. Then he got another one on Nov. 25 stating that he violated various areas of the school code, including "disruption/rights of others," "complicity," "physical harm," "coercion," "health and safety" and "hazing," however the letter did not specify his actions that prompted the allegations for the fall semester.
The suspension is effective for the upcoming spring semester.
The student is arguing that he wasn't properly notified about the allegations against him before the student conduct hearing on Dec. 2, that the school wouldn't hear his side and that his loss of his tuition payments for the spring is a "breach of contract," according to court documents.
The hearing ruled that the student would be permitted to take his exams for the fall semester and suspended in the spring.
The student is asking for a minimum of $15,000 and to be reinstated at the school for the fall semester.
