One former student of Stonehill College in Massachussets is seeking $150,000 in damages following a wild and crazy sex-filled senior year.
The problem is that it wasn't Lindsay Blankmeyer who was having the sex; it was her roommate.
Rather than devising creative, passive-aggressive, and, ultimately, effort-intensive ways to get back at her libidinous roommate, as you or I might have done, Blankmeyer has opted to make this ménage-a-trois a pas-de-deux by cutting out the third party (her roommate) and suing her school directly.

According to court documents, Blankmeyer alleges that her roommate engaged in both "sexually inappropriate video chatting" (ballsy) and good old fashioned sex (different kind of ballsy) frequently and while within close proximity to her throughout her senior year.
The sexcapades, Blankmeyer claims, exacerbated her symptoms of depression, and ultimately caused her to develop suicidal thoughts. She argues that the school failed to rectify the situation when it refused to either a) remove her roommate from their room or b) provide her with a new single room of adequate size.
A spokeswoman for Stonehill College, a Catholic university, had this to say, in response to Blankmeyer's allegations:
"The issues between the student and her roommate were first attempted to be resolved through mediation with a residence director. The student was then presented with multiple options for housing on campus, including a private room. The College also made special arrangements for the student to complete her degree while living at home. At no time did the student notify College staff that her concerns involved sexual activity by her roommate."
According to her lawsuit, Blankmeyer moved to a hotel room before eventually completing her bachelor of arts degree from home.
Minus the suicidal thoughts, this would make a good porn plot, right?
