OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - A deaf student at the University of Mississippi filed a lawsuit alleging the school discriminates against people who are deaf.
The lawsuit filed by Joshua Sisco said while he was a student at the school, he pointed out to university officials the social media for the university and sports programs were not closed captioned.
He said the school also did not provide closed captioning on televisions in common areas of the school including the dining areas.
The lawsuit also stated Sisco received bad grades in a Chinese history class because the teacher graded students on videos shown in class that were not captioned.
He said after he graduated, he continued his education with the school until he dropped out earlier this year.
He said the school did nothing to address his concerns while he was a student or since he left the school.
Sisco asked the judge to order the university to correct the captioning issue.
He also asked for monetary relief, including a rebate on tuition paid while he was a student, for the school's failure to address the situation.
