LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) A Lawrence man is suing Washburn University and a health care contractor at a Kansas prison over his dismissal from a graduate program that he says was caused by his attention deficit disorder.
The Lawrence Journal-World reportsRyan Talley, 30, alleges that he was dismissed from the clinical psychology graduate program because he needed medication to treat his ADHD.
Talley was working as an intern at the Topeka Correctional Facility in 2010 who needed a daily dose of Aderall to treat his ADHD. He says six months into his internship, a guard made him take his medication before he went into the prison.
Shortly after that, Talley was dismissed from the program.
Washburn spokesman Amanda Hughes said the university would have no comment.
