Judge Dismisses Valencia College Vaginal Ultrasound Case

Stay tuned in to our local news coverage: Listen to 90.7 WMFE on your FM or HD radio, the WMFE mobile app or your smart speaker — say “Alexa, play NPR” and you’ll be connected.

A Florida judge has dismissed a civil case against Valencia College’s ultrasound technician program. Three students alleged they were “browbeaten” to volunteer for transvaginal ultrasounds.

The judge ruled the suit has no viable chance of winning, and can’t be refiled. Valencia College banned students from practicing transvaginal ultrasounds on each other after the lawsuit was filed.

“We appreciate the court’s thoughtful review and well-reasoned decision,” wrote Valencia College spokeswoman Carol Traynor in a statement.

The plaintiff’s attorney didn’t respond to an immediate request for comment.

Valencia College asked a judge to drop the suit last month. Check here for a detailed look at the records in the case.
