WINTER PARK, Fla. – The lawyer for a Florida university student who accused his Muslim professor of religious discrimination has been reinstated to the school.
Attorney Kenneth Lewis said in a statement that 20-year-old Marshall Polston will return to Rollins College next week. The statement also calls for a "full inquiry" into the actions of Professor Areej Zufari.
The Winter Park school temporarily suspended Polston March 24, citing his treatment of the professor. School President Grant Cornwell declined comment on Polston's disciplinary hearing.
The Orlando Sentinel (http://bit.ly/2nH7KtI ) reports Zufari made a "protection against stalking" request in court over concerns about Polson. Injunction documents included an email in which Polson tells Zufari that she's trying to silence him after he disagreed with her teachings on Christianity in the Middle Eastern humanities class.
