Joseline Romero Standing to Sue – Response Both being injured, and the case of wrongful denial of admission are too far apart to correlate. It should not be sufficient, because there isn’t a lot of basis on this, unless you somehow argue that it was an internal injury, which would otherwise not be taken as seriously.
