Yes I am sure there are some mitigating facts the U might present


Would love to see them. The facts presented by the plaintiff seem Kafka-esque and are quite detailed and plentiful. Should be easy to poke holes in this lawsuit if it was truly meritless, as he makes several factual claims:

a. That he was never shown or even made aware of the existence of the written complaint cards filed against him until after he was suspended, and was only given 4 hours notice before the fateful hearing with no explanation of what he was accused of other than 'unprofessionalism'.

b. That he was ordered to undergo psychiatric counseling for aggression as a mandatory condition for resuming attending class.

c. That he was put under a no-trespass order by campus police with no prior warning, hearing or process to prevent him from resuming classes ("you can't come to class because of this protection order, so sorry").

Now if that was all because he asked some pointed questions during designated Q&A, then refused to attend mandatory psych counseling, that seems to be a severe over-reaction by the University. So of course there must be some actual aggressive behavior by him, right? I see a lot of very aggressive behavior by a few of these professors that seems like it is in need of counseling. Maybe a session on 'you might be wrong sometimes so argument by itself is not aggression'.
