NEW BRUNSWICK - (AP) - The parents of a Rutgers student whokilled himself after authorities said his roommate used a webcam tospy on his tryst with a man intend to sue the university.

The attorney for Tyler Clementi's parents filed notice onFriday.

Attorney Stephen DeFeo says it appears Rutgers failed toimplement or enforce policies that would have prevented or deterredsuch acts.

Rutgers spokesman E.J. Miranda told The Home News Tribune ofEast Brunswick the university sympathizes with the family. ButMiranda says Rutgers is not responsible for the freshman's death.

Clementi's roommate, Dharun Ravi, and fellow freshman Molly Weiare charged with invasion of privacy and have withdrawn fromRutgers.
