Jenkins v. Del. State Univ.

Plaintiff was a senior in the nursing program at Delaware State University (DSU) when she was dismissed for consuming a half of a margarita while on break during a clinical program. Plaintiff filed suit seeking reinstatement in the nursing program. The Court of Chancery granted relief, holding (1) DSU dismissed Plaintiff for academic reasons; (2) because Plaintiff was not fully informed of the charges against her or the severity of the consequences, she was not validly removed from the nursing program; and (3) Plaintiff was duly excluded from the clinical course but not from the nursing program.
