Former Xavier Guard Dez Wells Sues School

Dez Wells is suing his former school, Xavier University, after he was expelled following a sexual assault accusation. (

Dez Wells may be a Maryland Terp now, be he has not forgotten about his former school, Xavier University.

Yahoo! Sports reported Wells is suing the school and it's president, Father Michael Graham, for damages to his reputation after an accusation of sexual assault led to Wells' dismissal from the university. A grand jury did not indict Wells on the charges after reviewing evidence.

Wells' lawsuit states Xavier made a judgement on the sexual assault claim prematurely and Wells claims the negative image coming from the expulsion could hurt him when either entering the NBA or trying to find a job after college.

The payment amount for the damages in the lawsuit were not provided in the Yahoo! report. Along with the payment of damages, Wells is also asking that Xavier remove his expulsion, even though he will remain at Maryland.
