USDC(EDM): Disabled OU student can stay in dorm

A college student with an “intellectual disability” has a civil right to live in an Oakland University dorm with his friends, thanks to an order by U.S. District Court Judge Patrick J. Duggan.

The student Micah Fialka-Feldman sued to live in the dorms under the Federal Rehabilitation Act. OU wouldn’t let him live in the dorm because he was not on path to earn a degree from the university.

Fialka-Feldman had been taking a bus from his home in Huntington Woods to OU’s campus in Rochester.
