On Wednesday, the University of Minnesota defended its actions against a former mortuary science student at the Minnesota State Supreme Court.
In December 2009, Amanda Tatro posted controversial statements on her Facebook about her mortuary science course.
"Who knew embalming lab was so cathartic!" she said. "I still want to stab a certain someone in the throat with a trocar though."
TwinCities.com reported Tatro was referring to a former boyfriend.
She received a failing grade for the class and was forced to undergo psychological evaluation the Minnesota Daily reported.
Tatro's attorney, Jordan Kushner, said the school's actions were baseless and violated Tatro's First Amendment rights but the University's General Counsel, Mark Rotenberg, rebutted that Tatro failed to abide by the professional standards set for the students in the program.
The justices' opinion usually takes three to five months to be released after oral arguments.
Tatro said if she has to, she will appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
