EDISON - A judge has denied a motion to dismiss charges against a Rutgers University student accused of using a web camera to stream video of his roommate's encounter with another man.

For an interview with Dharun Ravi's attorney, click 'NEXT.' The judge ruled this morning that prosecutors provided adequate evidence to a grand jury for 19-year-old Dharun Ravi to be accused of invading his roommate's privacy, bias intimidation and trying to cover up the alleged crimes.

Ravi's roommate, Tyler Clementi, killed himself by jumping from the George Washington Bridge shortly after the incident last September.

Ravi's lawyers wanted the 15-count indictment dismissed, saying that prosecutors did not offer enough evidence to the grand jury.

The judge also ruled that the name of the man who had an encounter with Clementi should be released to Ravi's defense lawyers, but his identity cannot be disclosed publicly. He's identified in court documents only as M.B.
