Judge Orders Students Back to Class

Breaking news out of Auburn University involving those students who were suspended over Halloween costumes.

A Lee County judge has ordered the school to re-instate ten students who were academically suspended. According to the Opelika-Auburn news, Judge Robert Harper ordered the reinstatement after a hearing Wednesday.

The local chapter of the Beta Theta Pi sued the university on the grounds that the students' constitutional and civil rights were violated.

Harper's ruling does not prevent the university from taking further disciplinary action against the students, including expulsion. University attorney Lee Armstrong has declined to comment on the judge's ruling.
