Syrian student denied due process, faced deportation over alleged fake accusation

A Syrian national who was suspended from Penn State…for campus sexual-assault allegations can now return to class, a federal judge has ruled, nullifying the risk of his deportation. The ruling comes in the student’s lawsuit against Penn State, in which he alleged the investigation violated his due process rights. U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann of the Middle District of Pennsylvania said in his order that if the student’s academic career were interrupted, he would be sent back to Syria “where he will face the potential for serious bodily harm and related injuries.” By P.J.
