Frank Shannon Suspension Upheld by Oklahoma State Supreme Court

Oklahoma State Supreme Court ruled on Monday the year-long suspension of linebacker Frank Shannon can be enforced by University of Oklahoma, according to The Oklahoman and court documents.

The court ruled that Cleveland County District Judge Tracy Schumacher should not have issued a stay allowing Shannon to remain in school and part of Oklahoma's football team.

Shannon, Oklahoma's leading tackler in 2013, has not appeared in any games in 2014 despite the stay issued by District Judge Schumacher.

The state's highest court also decided to seal all documents related to Shannon's case.

Shannon was suspended in August by the University for violating the school's Title IX sexual misconduct policy.

Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn declined to file charges against Shannon related to case.
