Former student sues WVU over expulsion
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- A former student is suing West Virginia University over his expulsion for violating the school's Student Code of Conduct.
The lawsuit filed in Monongalia County Circuit Court seeks to force WVU to reinstate Taylor Camp so that he can complete his degree.
According to the lawsuit, Camp was expelled May 23 after the Student Conduct Board determined he had violated the conduct code. The decision following a hearing by the board on allegations of sexual misconduct.
Camp's lawyer, Ed Rollo, tells The Dominion Post that the board ignored evidence that there wasn't any sexual misconduct. Rollo says the hearing process was "fatally flawed.''
Attorneys for the WVU Board of Governors asked the court to dismiss the lawsuit. University spokesman John Bolt says WVU doesn't comment on pending litigation.
