Hearing Rescheduled for Nursing Students Suing Del Mar College

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A case involving nine nursing students suing Del Mar College was rescheduled for late March. The students claim the school unfairly blocked them from graduating.

"The effect of this will be to allow the parties to exchange information," said Robert Heil, an attorney for the Del Mar College nursing students. "To provide more specific details of what's being argued so that the parties both have a right to prepare for that."

The new exchange of information is scheduled to happen between both sides in the next couple of weeks. The students are asking District Judge Bobby Galvan to grant them a temporary restraining order against the college, which would force Del Mar to immediately certify them as completing their degree requirements.

"I feel like they are asking for a delay because they don't want to give us the opportunity to get on stand and prove that what they did was wrong," said Keara Torres, a nursing student who is suing Del Mar. "We have the witnesses. We have the evidence, all the documents to prove it, and they are trying to delay that."

Del Mar officials have declined to answer any questions on the case, but they did release a statement earlier this month saying the suit "lacked merit."

The new court hearing is set for March 20.
