December 24, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): 18-year-old Tyler Clementi was the student of the Rutgers University at Piscataway, who had perpetrated suicide subsequent to the broadcast online by his roommates of Tyler’s gay sexual encounter. Tyler’s parents are taking into account transporting the school to the courthouse. Nevertheless, Rutgers has repudiated any liability for Tyler’s demise. The familial attorney, Paul Mainardi, has already initiated the notice of the intention to sue. Mainardi has remarked that the parents of Tyler have not resolved definitely whether to get going with the lawsuit or not. The notice has, however, asserted that it seems that Rutgers was unable to put into effect strategies that would have thwarted or put off actions such as the online broadcast.

The spokesperson of Rutgers, E Miranda, has voiced, in response to the notice, that the university empathizes with the Clementis but is not accountable for Tyler’s decease. As per, Rutgers has verbalized in a declaration that they acknowledge that an inconsolable family may query whether some person or some association could have, in any way, been blameworthy for their son’s passing away. Rutgers has voiced that the University comprehends the inescapability of this parental reaction, notwithstanding which the University is blameless and without fault.

The claim notice, dispatched to the university on a few days back, sustains the Clementis’ right to go to court against Rutgers for not acting against the two students, who clandestinely observed Clementi kissing a male in his dorm room.

Tyler Clementi, a freshman, plunged from the George Washington Bridge subsequent to his roommate, Dharun Ravi, and classmate, Molly Wei, supposedly live-streaming the video of Tyler in a carnal act with another male in his dorm room. Tyler was unconscious of this. Both Ravi and Wei have disengaged from Rutgers and are having to deal with the charge of incursion of privacy for staking out Tyler.

This tragic case later acquired transnational attention and was labeled as another notorious instance of cyber intimidation and homosexual victimization. John Keefe Jr. is a specialist on civil lawsuits at his Red Bank law firm. He has proclaimed that Tyler’s parents had been compelled by the regulations of the New Jersey State to launch the notice within 90 days of the depressing suicide to defend their right to sue since Rutgers University is a public body. In the interim, the headquarters of the Middlesex County’s Prosecutor is still scrutinizing the accusations against Ravi and Wei, as per the headquarters’ spokesperson, James O’Neill.
