California lawsuit could affect universities' policies on student mental health

Hosted by

The California Supreme Court ruled this month that a former UCLA student could move forward with a lawsuit against the university. After a fellow student stabbed her in class, she sued for negligence, arguing that the school failed to protect her. The court decision is among the first of its kind in the nation and could make colleges liable for violence that happens in classrooms and on campus.
