From Friday's Washington Post: GWU Suit Prompts Questions Of Liability.
A Virginia judge says that a college has a duty to prevent a suicide if the risk is readily foreseeable.
A common allegation is that the school violates federal law protecting Americans with disabilities by threatening suspension or expulsion.
Historically, college administrators have not been held responsible for student suicides. But these new cases raise questions that could result in substantial financial liability for colleges.
