‘St. Louis Post-Dispatch’ Covers STLCC Victory
January 31, 2008
This is the third article the Post-Dispatch has written covering the case and includes e-mail correspondence from Xiao to the newspaper. Not surprisingly, STLCC has remained fairly mum on the case and offered only a brief statement to the Post-Dispatch on Wednesday:
[T]he college said simply that it was pleased to have reached an agreement with Xiao, who remains a student at the college.
After signing this settlement agreement with STLCC, Xiao can now complete the prerequisites required to apply to medical school without a tarnished record and told the newspaper that he "felt good" about the outcome of the case.
"It is victory, a victory of justice," he said, in an e-mail. "However, it is also a tragedy in that there should not have had such a victory at all in this democratic country."
