Rutgers Parents Of Tyler Clementi Sue University

Rutgers parents of Tyler Clementi sue University. Parents of Rutgers University student Tyler Clementi plan to sue. Clementi committed suicide after his roommate used a webcam to spy on his relationship with another man.
The video from the webcam was made public, which sent Tyler Clementi into a depression. Dharun Ravi and fellow freshman Molly Wei are charged with invasion of privacy and have withdrawn from the school. The attorney for his parents filed notice on Friday and plan to sue Rutgers University over the incident.
Attorney Stephen DeFeo says it appears Rutgers failed to implement or enforce policies that would have prevented or deterred such acts. Rutgers spokesman E.J. Miranda told The Home News Tribune of East Brunswick the university sympathizes with the family. But Miranda says Rutgers is not responsible for the freshman's death.
Clementi jumped to his death off the George Washington Bridge in September. The video of his relationship with another man was made public on social media networks. It has been removed since the suicide.
