Catholic college sued over failure to provide distraught student single room
CWN - March 02, 2012
Citing anti-discrimination and fair housing laws, a recent graduate of a Catholic college in Massachusetts has sued her alma mater.
Lindsay Blankmeyer’s lawsuit states that she entered Stonehill College with depression and attention deficit disorder and that her roommate’s practices of frequently sleeping with overnight guests and engaging in prurient online video chat sessions led to a suicidal depression. After the college refused to grant her a single room, Blankmeyer lived in a hotel and later finished her studies from home.
A spokesman for Stonehill College, which is affiliated with the Congregation of the Holy Cross, said that “there are two sides, and sometimes more, to every story. We will be responding to the complaint.”

Similar things happen at Holy Cross. Students living with sex partners is no longer uncommon on Catholic campuses. And now, we have a very sexually active law student at Georgetown demanding that hardworking plumbers and electricians along with other tax payers pony up money for her contraceptives. This young woman could get generic contraceptives from Walmart for $5 per month, but perish the thought of a liberal elitist shopping at Walmart.
