Dad sues, says college didn’t keep his daughter safe

February 19, 2019

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut father has sued his daughter’s former college, saying the school failed to keep her safe.

The Connecticut Post reports that Paul Lisi, of Monroe, says in the suit that his daughter was assaulted twice while attending Albertus Magnus College in New Haven.

He alleges she was repeatedly bullied during her freshman year, but nothing was done. He also says a male student pushed his daughter into a dresser in her dorm room.

The lawsuit says the woman lost confidence in the administration’s ability to make her feel safe. She has since withdrawn from the school.

Lisi says in the suit he was refunded a fraction of room and board charges, but is seeking another $11,000.

College spokeswoman Andrea Kovacs says she cannot comment on student conduct matters.
