Learning-disabled Oakland student wins fight over dorm room

The Detroit News reports on a disabled student who finally won his fight to live on campus at OU:

Micah Fialka-Feldman, a 25-year-old Huntington Woods student, can move in the Oakland University dorms in January, ending the disabled student’s two-year old battle to live on campus, despite his cognitive impairment.

Under the opinion by U.S. District Court Patrick J. Duggan, the university did violate a federal disability rights law when it denied Fialka-Feldman a dorm room for the January 2008 semester.
