Basketball player suing to clear name, reputation

University of Maryland guard Dez Wells filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday seeking damages against his former school, Xavier University, and its president, Father Michael Graham, over what he asserts was his wrongful expulsion last summer, according to Yahoo Sports.



The suit alleges Xavier failed to follow its own policies when deciding to expel him following a 2012 allegation of sexual assault.

The local prosecutor investigated the case and not only declined to charge Wells but declared in media accounts the allegation “didn’t reach anything close to a standard of proof” and “should never have gotten to the point where someone’s reputation is ruined,” according to Yahoo Sports.
