Students That Sued Miami University Over COVID Suspension Reinstated

-

Two Miami University students who filed a lawsuit against the school after being suspended for violating COVID-19 protocols have been reinstated by a judge on Tuesday.

The students — identified as Jane Doe and Jane Roe — were suspended over noise violation during an off-campus house party on August 22.

Court records reveal that the university suspended Doe and Roe based on police evidence, which included video footage of the party and a police officer’s conversations with the two students.

Court of Claims Judge Dale Crawford heard arguments from attorneys on both sides and issued a temporary restraining order requiring Miami to reinstate the students “in good standing with all benefits.”

In addition to the order requiring the university to reinstate the two students, Roe and Doe are now asking for “not less than $75,000” in damages along with an order requiring Miami to expunge the students’ records related to the suspensions.

On Tuesday, the students’ attorneys, Eric Long and Leslie Albeit, informed that the two students had missed about two weeks of classes, but were hoping to work with their professors to catch-up and take final exams.
