Judge rules in favor of Johnson County Community College nursing student Doyle Byrnes in placenta photo case


Doyle Byrnes, a nursing student who was ousted over posting a photo of herself on the internet holding a placenta, is eager to continue her education at Johnson County Community College now that a judge has ruled she can return to school.
