A judge has limited the arguments Creighton University can make later this month in defending itself from a lawsuit by a man who says its medical school discriminated against him because he is deaf.

The jury trial, set to start Aug. 20 in Omaha's federal court, comes after a U.S. 8th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling in March that said a jury should be allowed to decide whether Creighton discriminated against medical school student Michael Argenyi. The ruling reversed a lower court's dismissal of Argenyi's lawsuit.
