U. of Nebraska-Kearney to allow more support dog use in housing

The University of Nebraska at Kearney and the board of regents of the university have agreed to settle a civil rights lawsuit about support dogs for students living on campus.

The proposed settlement changes the housing policy at the university and allows students with psychological disabilities to keep animals with them in campus housing.

The proposed settlement resolves the lawsuit filed by the Justice Department in 2011, but the U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska in Lincoln still must approve it.
