Atwater said that a voluntary dismissal was filed last Wednesday and that his client, Roman Caple, "is very pleased" with the outcome.

Roman Caple sued St. Augustine's College in July 2011 after he was not allowed to march in the commencement ceremony because of comments he'd made on the school's Facebook page. The suit claimed the college violated his freedom of expression and wrongly denied him the opportunity to participate in graduation after he had fulfilled academic requirements.
