Date incident allegedly occurred: March 9, 1990

Date of official medical school "dismissal": June 25, 1990

Date University first notified me of this charge: February 8, 1991



The University canceled all classes for spring break, which commenced after classes on March 9, 1990, and continued through March 19, 1990. The Medical School does not record attendance because the Medical School does not have an attendance policy however; my notes prove I attended classes. Nevertheless, Associate Dean Judy DeMers lied to the University committees and ultimately the Court by creating and utilizing the following false statement to obtain my medical school dismissal.



3-9-90. Vivian stopped attending class on any regular basis.



  1. Medical School's Academic Calendar

Calendar covering the relevant period of time-

Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday

18 19


  1. Accompanying University records reveal DeMers concocted this prevarication long after dismissal. Certainly, if this allegation held any merit documentation would exist in my student record.

This table lists the contents of my student record during the period in question.

  1. Statement made by University committee chairman (Tom Akers) during the deliberations of the April 12, 1990, meeting at which University administrators decided to force me to fail, contradicts Judy's fanciful allegation. "She missed almost two weeks of class because she fears for her life".


Appendix contains applicable regulations disregarded by the University of North Dakota.


Citing sovereign immunity, the University of North Dakota refuses to comply with regulations guaranteeing me the opportunity to respond to this factually incorrect allegation contrived months after my dismissal!
