KENILWORTH, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) -- A judge has ruled that a New Jersey girl expelled from her Roman Catholic school after her family sued because it wouldn't let her play on the boys' basketball team must be allowed to return to school.
The family went to court after the Archdiocese of Newark informed the family Wednesday of the expulsion. The archdiocese says that the parent and student handbook says that parents will be requested to remove their children if they file lawsuits against the school.
A different judge last month denied the family's attempt to allow Phillips to play on the eighth grade boys' basketball team after the girls' team was canceled.
