A Princeton University student has sued the university and seven administrators, saying that they violated his rights when they reacted to a suicide attempt in his dormitory room by evicting him and asking him to withdraw from classes, NJ.com reported. The suit alleges that Princeton was not acting in the student's best interests, but was trying to avoid adverse publicity. A Princeton spokesman declined to comment on the specifics of the case. The suit comes at a time that colleges are under increased scrutiny -- in part due to new federal regulations -- over their responses to potentially suicidal students.
