The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia has reversed a decision by the president of one of its campuses to expel a student who had protested plans to build parking garages there.
The student, T. Hayden Barnes, who had just finished his sophomore year at Valdosta State University when he was expelled last spring, filed a federal lawsuit against the university last week.
