A former Virginia Tech soccer player who says she was benched for refusing to take a knee during the national anthem has been given to go-ahead to sue the school for violations of her freedom of speech.

U.S. District Judge Thomas T. Cullen gave former Hokies midfielder Kiersten Hening the OK to sue coach Charles Aidair on First Amendment grounds after Hening says the coach benched her for refusing to join in with the team’s kneeling in 2020 as a “unity statement.”

Hening filed suit against the school and the coach last year, but the school filed a motion to have the lawsuit thrown out. But on Dec. 2, Judge Cullen ruled that the suit could move forward, Fox News reported.
