David Powers is suing St. John's University after its law school kicked him out over a 10-year-old conviction for selling LSD, The New York Daily News reported. Powers was ranked third in his class, but the university maintains he was not honest about his criminal past -- having admitted to a conviction for drug possession, but not for selling LSD. A lawyer for Powers appealed to the university's Roman Catholic heritage, saying: "This is a Vincentian university.... They're supposed to be about forgiveness."
