Rochester Hills  (WWJ) – A judge has ruled in favor of Oakland University, dismissing a lawsuit by a student who was suspended after writing about his sexual attraction to a teacher.

The Federal Judge says those words may be appropriate in a karaoke bar, but they don’t need to be tolerated by the university. He says there’s no violation of 57-year-old Joseph Corlett’s free speech rights.

Corlett was suspended in 2012 after writing about his writing instructor. He titled his essay “Hot for Teacher.” Corlett now lives in Florida, and hasn’t commented on Tuesday’s decision.
