EDISON - Signs of a strained relationship between Tyler Clementi and his former roommate at Rutgers University are apparently coming to light in new court documents.
Nineteen-year-old Dharun Ravi faces 15 charges, including bias intimidation and invasion of privacy, in the case that's been linked to Clementi's suicide last September.
The filing says Ravi accidentally caught Clementi on camera with another man, but immediately shut it off. The filing says Ravi has "no problem" with homosexuality and only turned on the camera because he was concerned the man Clementi had over might steal his iPad.
Clementi's suicide sparked a national discussion about how harassment of young gays can lead to suicide.
A lawyer for Ravi says in newly filed legal papers that prosecutors got it all wrong and that the case should be dropped.
The court documents suggest Clementi and Ravi were trying to learn all they could about each other once they knew they'd become roommates at Rutgers University. A number of text messages are included in the documents.
