A federal judge today ordered Johnson County Community College to reinstate a nursing student who had been dismissed for posting a picture of a human placenta on Facebook.
U.S. District Judge Eric F. Melgren ruled against the college on every legal point it raised.
Doyle Byrnes, 22, will be allowed to take the final exam she missed in the fall and to enroll in the new semester that begins Jan. 19.
Every. Legal. Point. Score: nursing students, 2 (Doyle Byrnes and Nina Yoder); nursing schools, 0.
