A Georgetown University student facing possible expulsion over his father's involvement in a college admissions bribery scheme is taking the school to court. Adam Semprevivo filed a lawsuit Wednesday morning against the private university in Washington, D.C., demanding that a district court judge block the school from taking disciplinary action against him that could include revoking his earned academic credits and subjecting him to academic discipline after his father, California sales executive Stephen Semprevivo, admitted paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes to get him accepted. Stephen Semprevivo had hired a college admissions consultant, William 'Rick' Singer, to help with his son's applications several years ago.
