Judge refuses to reinstate suspended Okla. student

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A federal judge is refusing to order the
Oologah-Talala school district to reinstate a suspended
eighth-grader.
U.S. District Judge Gregory Frizzell ruled Thursday that
14-year-old Elora Connelly will not be "irreparably harmed" if
she isn't allowed to attend classes before the end of the school
year.
Connelly was suspended for 13 weeks in February after officials
say they found marijuana residue in her jacket. The girl denies
possessing marijuana and says she often loaned the jacket to
friends.
She said she is taking online courses and is on pace to enter
the ninth grade next year and Frizzell said he hopes a lawsuit over
the suspension is resolved by then.
