A court ruling will allow the parents of a freshman who died mysteriously in 2006 to continue their wrongful-death lawsuit against the College of New Jersey. Susan and John Fiocco, the parents of the student, claim lax security may have allowed a stranger to enter a dormitory on the Ewing, N.J., campus and kill their 19-year-old son. The student’s blood was found around a trash compactor, and his body was found in a landfill a month later.
A Superior Court judge ruled that the college was not shielded from liability because a jury could conclude the school was negligent or allowed a dangerous situation to exist. Christine O’Hearn, a lawyer from Camden, N.J., is representing the parents. It will be interesting to see how this lawsuit develops as it proceeds through the system.
