Judge orders reinstatement for student who posted placenta photo to Facebook -

A federal judge today ordered Johnson County Community College to reinstate a nursing student who had been dismissed for posting a picture of a human placenta on Facebook.

U.S. District Judge Eric F. Melgren ruled against the college on every legal point it raised.

Doyle Byrnes, 22, will be allowed to take the final exam she missed in the fall and to enroll in the new semester that begins Jan. 19.

Byrnes was one of four students who were dismissed from the nursing program after they had themselves photographed with the placenta on Nov. 10. The college said they could reapply to the program in August.
