Discrimination Lawsuits

Duke University –

A lawsuit has been filed by Disability Rights North Carolina against Duke University charging that the Master of Divinity program discriminated against a student with a learning disability (dyslexia). It is alleged that a student was denied requested accommodations (i.e., audio versions of all reading assignments) and was threatened with loss of his scholarship if he did not withdraw an internal grievance he filed regarding the matter.

Kent State University –

The Department of Housing and Urban Development has charged Kent State University and four university employees with discrimination related to the refusal to permit a student to reside in a university apartment with her emotional support animal. It is alleged that the student and her husband were forced to vacate university family housing when the student, acting upon the advice of a university psychologist obtained an emotional support animal to cope with a panic disorder and generalized anxiety disorder.
