Lawsuit dismissed over St. John’s student suspension
ST. JOSEPH, Minn. (AP) — St. John’s University and a suspended student have agreed to dismiss a lawsuit that alleged he was unfairly punished for a sexual encounter with a female student from the partnering College of St. Benedict.
Aaron Wildenborg sued the school in St. Joseph and St. Benedict in Collegeville in 2016 after the coordinate schools suspended him for two years. Wildenborg wanted to clear his disciplinary record, return to school and have more than $50,000 in scholarships restored, plus cash damages.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press says court records show no money was exchanged as a result of the dismissal. No additional terms were disclosed.
Wildenborg said the woman consented to sex after the two had been drinking on Halloween night 2015. A disciplinary panel concluded she was too intoxicated to consent.
