EASTON (CBS) – A Stonehill College graduate is suing the school, saying her roommate’s sex life drove her into a suicidal depression.
The student, Lindsay Blankmeyer of New York, said her roommate engaged in sex while Blankmeyer was in the room.
When Blankmeyer complained, she was moved to another dorm space and offered other living options, but Blankmeyer did not find them acceptable.
“Stonehill refused Lindsay’s request for a single room and in the following weeks and months Lindsay fell into a dark and suicidal depression,” Blankmeyer’s lawyer said in a court filing.
Eventually, she needed to be hospitalized and treated for severe depression.
Stonehill said it is reviewing the complaint.
“We are reviewing the complaint, which focuses on a previous roommate issue. There are two sides, and sometimes more, to every story. We will be responding to the complaint,” said Martin McGovern, director of Communications and Media Relations at Stonehill College, in a statement.
Blankmeyer’s lawyer acknowledged his client has preexisting mental health problems.
