Dharun Ravi Is NOT Getting Off The Hook In Tyler Clementi Case!

Filed under: Legal MattersR.I.P.Sad Sad

The suicide of Rutgers University student Tyler Clementi, who killed himself after Dharun Ravi secretly filmed him having sex with another man and broadcast it over the internet, shocked the nation almost a year ago, and now, it appears that the roommate and his lawyer are now claiming that the whole thing was a big misunderstanding!

Good! What he did was WRONG!

Although Dharun Ravi, the Rutgers University student who secretly filmed roommate Tyler Clementi being intimate with another man and broadcast it over the internet - which ultimately led to his suicide last year - had attempted to assert that the entire thing was a misunderstanding, Middlesex County Superior Court Judge Glenn Berman has ruled that he will NOT be dismissing his 15 criminal charges, including bias and intimidation, against him.

University of Florida Vs. Jersey Shore

Filed under: TV NewsMTVParty Poppin'SnookiThe Situation

university of florida vs jersey shore

Rutgers University certainly wouldn't have a problem with this…

As the Jersey Shore cast begins partying it up in Italy, University of Florida students studying abroad have been warned not to partake in the Jerseyrrific festivities, at the risk of expulsion.

The drama all started when an abroad student partied on camera with the Jersey folks.

Here's the email that was sent to students following the incident:

"Any student who does agree to participate in the filming of the show, or who signs a waiver or legal agreement of any sort with MTV, will be dismissed from the program immediately."

While they're obviously still not a fan of their students partaying Jersey-style, UF Director of Public Affairs Janine Sikes released the following statement, contradicting the first email:

"Generally speaking, students may participate in activities outside their Study Abroad program as long as they meet the academic and living requirements of that program. This is a reversal of the UF administrator’s position."

We're glad to hear it! As long as students are responsible, don't party TOO hard, and maintain their grades, then we think they should def be allowed to spend a night at the club with Snooki and The Situation!

Do U think it would have been okay for the University of Florida to ban students from partying with the Jersey Shore cast?

UPDATE: University of Florida's Janine Sikes is saying that this is all untrue, and she's calling out TMZ, who originally broke the story:

"Signing a contract as described by TMZ would not violate UF's Student Conduct Code and students would not be subject to any discipline."

All types of conflicting stories here! What's the deal, UF? Are you guys down with Jersey Shore or what? LOLz.
