Doe Questioning George Floyd Protests Got Suspension From Bronx College But Still There

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - ESPN - Doe Podcast

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 17 – Annie Doe - not her real name - while a student at the College of Mount Saint Vincent in Riverdale in the North Bronx posted on Instagram criticism of protests to the alleged murder of George Floyd. 

She wrote, "Just because one black guy dies doesn't mean the entire world should act like untamed apes."   More on Patreon, here.

 She was charged with harassment, and issued a two year suspension and a referral to a homeless shelter.

She sued - and "has not left the premises." 

 On September 17 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Valerie E. Caproni held a lengthy proceeding. Inner City Press covered it - and ended up live tweeting, here.

 Annie Doe's lawyer conceded it is not a First Amendment case, since College of Mount Saint Vincent is a private school. But he attacked the disciplinary process Annie Doe was put through.  

 His complaint noted Annie Doe's support of Trump and MAGA, and the negative reactions these drew from other CMSV students. He sued for sex discrimination, retaliation and most intriguingly, breach of contract.  The College of Mount Saint Vincent lawyer said "the optics are bad," parents who pay tuition are asking why Annie Doe is still on campus. Her "electronic card access to the front door has been canceled" - but she has not left.

 Judge Caproni, past 5 pm, asked about dog whistles. Inner City Press, three hours into the hearing, began live tweeting.  

At 6 pm, Judge Caproni denied Annie Doe's requested injunction. She told the CMSV lawyer he has until October 2 to oppose - presumably, to make a motion to dismiss.

She offered the services of SDNY Magistrate Judge Stewart D. Aaron, if both parties want it. There is a related case - Inner City Press will continue to follow and report on this, watch this site. More on Patreon, here.
