BRAINERD, Minn. (AP) – A man has filed a federal lawsuit against officials at Brainerd’s Central Lakes College after he says he was expelled for a Facebook post.

Craig Keefe, of Gull Lake, is suing to be reinstated to his nursing program as well as damages from the defendants, which include the school’s president Larry Lundblad.

Keefe’s attorney, Jordan Kushner, tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press school officials never gave the 37-year-old a specific explanation for his expulsion in December and violated the college’s rules by denying him an appeal.

The suit claims school officials complained to Keefe over two Facebook posts. One allegedly used a derogatory term and the other was “a comment about there not being enough whiskey for anger management.”

A phone message left for Lundblad Monday wasn’t immediately returned.
