The University of Oklahoma’s fight to keep starting linebacker Frank Shannon off the field this season will go before the Oklahoma state Supreme Court at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to court documents.


OU suspended Shannon for one year from both school and football on June 18 following an independent investigation into an alleged sexual assault from January. The Cleveland County district attorney didn’t file criminal charges in the matter.

Shannon took his case to court June 24 and received a stay from district Judge Tracy Schumacher. The stay remains in place, allowing Shannon to practice with the team and remain enrolled in school while Schumacher reviews the case.

OU appealed the case to the supreme court Monday after OU president David Boren issued a public statement announcing the results of the school’s internal investigation, which found Shannon to have violated the university’s sexual misconduct policy.

Wednesday’s hearing relates only to Schumacher’s stay.
