NEW BRUNSWICK - Lawyers for the former Rutgers student who was charged with spying and bias intimidation after his roommate killed himself will ask a judge Friday to dismiss the case.

A national conversation about how young gays are treated was sparked last year after 18-year-old Tyler Clementi committed suicide.

Authorities said he killed himself last September after roommate Dharun Ravi tried to use a webcam to spy on Clementi's encounter with another man.

Ravi's lawyers also want prosecutors to reveal the identity of the man with whom Clementi had the encounter.

Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.
