Dear Mr. Stilwagner:
Omaha, Nebraska – The final barrier to a medical education fell today in the historic case of Michael Argenyi v. Creighton University. After a four year legal battle, a federal judge ordered Creighton University to provide captioning and interpreters so that Michael Argenyi can at long last complete his medical education.
