Sen. Frank Lautenberg and Rep. Rush Holt, both New Jersey Democrats, have introduced legislation in Congress that would require colleges receiving federal funds to designate cyberbullying as a form of harassment, and to ban and have programs to prevent harassment based on a variety of factors, including sexual orientation. The legislation -- similar to measures being considered in New Jersey's legislature -- was prompted by the suicide of Tyler Clementi, a Rutgers University student whom other students allegedly filmed while he was intimate with a man in his dormitory room.
