CBS New York came to the Pace Law campus to speak with Professor Randolph McLaughlin, an expert on civil rights, about a case in Yonkers where state officials removed a male athlete from the girls volleyball team. Yonkers does not have a boys volleyball team. The athlete, Jensen Daniel, had played with the team last year.
“I think it’s discrimination in that this matter should be pressed to another level of review to determine whether or not this young man should be able to play on this team,” said McLaughlin. “I think, what’s going on here is the other schools apparently don’t like the fact that this Yonkers team is doing so well.”
