I never cease to be amazed at the lawsuits that are filed in this country! Lindsay Blankmeyer, former student at a Roman Catholic college in Massachusetts, has filed a lawsuit against the school, claiming administrators didn’t do enough to help her when she complained that her roommate was having too much sex in their dorm room. In the lawsuit, Blankmeyer says the college offered her two options, one was moving to another dorm where she would live in a room that was previously used as a study lounge and was a “small cubicle-like space.” The other option was to move to a dorm with a reputation as a “party dorm” to live with a girl Blankmeyer did not know. Her lawsuit alleges that school officials wouldn’t give her reasonable housing alternatives to get her away from her roommate.
It is appalling to witness this frivolous use of our justice system. Unfortunately, due to financial constraints, I too have shared living accommodations with others and like this student, suffered from extreme disappointment. I just can’t understand why she simply didn’t accept one of the options provided by the school. I can relate to the sentiment of “unfairness”, but to file a lawsuit?
