WELLESLEY, Mass. (AP) — A lawyer for one of two college students barred from their campus for taunting students at Hillary Clinton's alma mater in Massachusetts is demanding an apology after the ban was removed.

Babson College students Edward Tomasso and Parker Rand-Ricciardi were accused of driving around the nearby all-women's Wellesley College the day after the election, shouting racial and homophobic slurs and waving a Donald Trump flag.

The Boston Herald reports (http://bit.ly/2gRaDm6 ) Babson told the students Sunday the ban had been lifted.

Rand-Ricciardi's lawyer, Jeffrey Robbins, is calling on Babson to retract its statements questioning the duo. Robbins also wants an apology and internal harassment and disorderly conduct charges withdrawn.

Attorneys for Rand-Ricciardi and Tomasso declined to comment. Babson says it doesn't comment on specific student conduct matters.
