NEW BRUNSWICK - Rutgers University officials say they responded appropriately to a complaint by a student who committed suicide after a gay sexual encounter was broadcast online.
Prosecutors had subpoenaed Rutgers for e-mails regarding its handling of Tyler Clementi's complaint. University President Richard McCormick says he personally reviewed Clementi's student records after the 18-year-old freshman committed suicide.
"Based on everything I know, I believe that we did all we could and we did the right thing," McCormick said in the Star-Ledger.
