OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) — A junior college in suburban Kansas City is defending its decision to kick out four students who posed for photos with a human placenta.
One of the students, Doyle Byrnes, is seeking a temporary restraining order and a preliminary injunction to force Johnson County Community College to reinstate her before classes resume Jan. 19. She had posted one of the photos on Facebook.
The school has said the students could seek readmission in the fall and finish the program a year later in May 2012. But Byrnes is getting married in August and had planned to move to Virginia with her husband and work there as a registered nurse.
The college's lead attorney, Mark Ferguson, said in an e-mail Sunday that she should accept the consequences of her actions.
