A deaf student is appealing a federal judge's ruling last December that said Creighton doesn't have to reimburse him the more than $100,000 he spent on special equipment and interpreters in his first two years of medical school.

Michael Argenyi's cross-appeal was filed Wednesday after lawyers for Creighton filed their own appeal earlier this month. Creighton's appeal challenges the judge's ruling that it must provide Argenyi with the equipment and interpreters to allow him to finish med school.

Argenyi was accepted to Creighton's medical school in 2008 after disclosing he was hearing-impaired and requesting accommodations to allow him to follow lectures and communicate with patients.

He sued in 2009 after leaving the school when the university refused his requests for interpreters, even if he paid for them himself.
