A New York woman has filed a lawsuit against her former Roman Catholic college in Boston, claiming administrators didn't do enough to help her when she complained that her roommate was having too much sex in their dorm room. Lindsay Blankmeyer said in a federal lawsuit that she suffered from depression and attention deficit disorder before she enrolled at Stonehill College, but was driven into a suicidal depression after school officials wouldn't give her reasonable housing alternatives to get her away from her roommate at the school in Easton, Mass. Blankmeyer said her roommate had sex with her boyfriend while she was trying to sleep just feet away and also participated in "sexually inappropriate video chatting" while Blankmeyer was in the dorm room. After trying unsuccessfully to persuade school officials to force her roommate to move out or to give her an acceptable private room, Blankmeyer ended up living at a hotel, according to the lawsuit filed earlier this week. "Stonehill refused Lindsay's request for a single room and in the following weeks and months Lindsay fell into a dark and suicidal depression requiring her to take a leave of absence from school and undergo extensive psychiatric and medical treatment," the lawsuit states. Blankmeyer eventually completed her final semester of school at her home in New York and received a bachelor's of arts degree in Sept 2011. Blankmeyer enrolled as a freshman in 2007 but the lawsuit said problems began her senior year.She's seeking $150,000. Lindsay (who the college says never told them about her roommates, er, sexual activity) admits in her lawsuit the college did try to cure the problem by offering her to move to a private room, but she turned that down because the room was formerly a study lounge and was a "small cubicle-like space." The college also offered to move her to another. But Lindsay 86ed that idea because the dorm has a reputation as a "party dorm" and she didn't want to room with a girl she did not know. Yep, she sounds like an entitled brat who is trying to get paid. It should be interesting to hear what the courts have to say about this. In fact, a woman has already claimed loud sex is a civil right.
