(hennemusic) A Federal judge has dismissed a Michigan student's lawsuit against Oakland University after he was suspended for writing about his attraction to his teachers in a class journal based on a Van Halen classic.
57-year-old Joseph Corlett sued the school in March for $2.2 million and four lost credits, claiming his free-speech rights were violated after he was suspended in 2012 after writing about his writing instructor. He titled his essay "Hot for Teacher," the name of a Van Halen song.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports U.S. District Judge Patrick Duggan dismissed Corlett's lawsuit and ruled in favor of Oakland University in suburban Detroit on Tuesday. more on this story
