And those particular words are used ALOT in these here parts. I have heard
of many a lawsuit against schools becuase of deaths of students by alchohol
& drugs. The government here doesn't really classify you as an adult until
you are 24 if you are a student, so the parents seem to think the school
should be a babysitter. For most college freshman students, their first
exposure to booze and drugs si during their freshman year, it's also the
first time they haven't had mommy & daddy looking over their shoulder, so
they get completly toasted and many times get alchohol poisoning &/or OD. SO
then naturally the parents immediatly think SUE....

Man, sometimes I hate America/Americans...

>>Again, I really don't see that it is the university's problem if a student
gets killed because they're intoxicated.  Is it the university's problem
if I overdose on sleeping tablets?  Or on smack?  Or if I have a traffic
accident on-campus whilst under the influence of $other_recreational_drug?<<

My UK-Based Friend, you may not understand the dark fear that comes over
people in the US (at least those with fiduciary responsibilities) when the
words'lawsuit', 'lawyer' and 'class action' are bandied about.
