Mar 2, 2012, 2:47 PM
BOSTON (AP) – A former student at a Roman Catholic college in Massachusetts is suing the school, saying officials didn’t do enough to help her move out of the dorm room she shared with a roommate she found to be overly sexual.
The former Stonehill College student, Lindsay Blankmeyer says she was driven into a suicidal depression because housing officials didn’t give her reasonable alternatives for getting out of her living situation.
She alleges in the suit that her roommate had sex with her boyfriend while Blankmeyer tried to sleep just feet away.
She says she eventually moved into a hotel room, then withdrew from school when her depression worsened.
The suit seeks $150,000.
A spokesman says the college in Easton is reviewing the case and there are two sides to the story.
