The ex-pulse and the school's refusal to let him transfer his credits to another college deprives him of his due process and the son had no knowledge of his father's payment. Adam semprevivo appeared to be in direct contact with singer and Ernst even sending the former tennis cope an email drafted by singer saying in part I'm looking forward to having a chance to play for you. What is Georgetown university saying about his expulsion? That's the thing.

Have they explained the email at all. That's the thing about all of these cases, how much did the kids actually know? This was an email drafted by singer, semprevivo was told to send it through. Did he actually look at it? Did he read it? The university is basically saying it doesn't matter. Wow. All right, whit, thank you.
