Bissessur v. Indiana Univ. Bd. of Trustees, No. 08-3504

By FindLaw Staff on September 11, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Dismissal of plaintiff's action against the Indiana University School of Optometry arising from his expulsion from the school is affirmed as the court correctly concluded that plaintiff failed to point to any specific promise that the university made which established that plaintiff might have had an entitlement to a continuing education or any other entitlement. As such, plaintiff's complaint failed to contain enough information to state a legally cognizable claim.
