The University of Minnesota went to court on Wednesday, to discipline a mortuary sciences student for comments she made on Facebook.
In December 2009, Amanda Tatro wrote on Facebook that she wanted "to stab a certain someone in the throat" with a trocar- a tool used for embalming.
The Minnesota Court of Appeals upheld the University's right to discipline Tatro. She maintains that the University encroached on free speech rights.
The questioning lasted an hour, then, the court adjourned.
Tatro said after the hearing that she hoped to "finally get closure to what I didn't start."
The justice's decision usually takes three to five months.
