Jordan Notts, a former student at George Washing University, filed suit against school for his dismissal after seeking help for depression at the University’s hospital. He claimed that administrators violated the Americans with Disabilities Act, along with other state and local laws, by using the school’s disciplinary code to ban him campus.
An undisclosed settlement was reached during the discovery process. According to a GW spokesperson, the university had been reviewing its policies on students’ involuntary withdrawal for medical mental health reason before the lawsuit. Their goal was to develop an administrative process for removing mentally ill students against their will without involving disciplinary action.
