College sues former student who refuses to leave dormitory

NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City college is trying to evict a former student who it says is illegally squatting in her dorm room.

Hunter College has sued 32-year-old Lisa Palmer, saying the woman owes more than $94,000 in unpaid residence hall fees since she dropped out in 2016.

The lawsuit says Palmer was denied summer housing in 2016. She remained in her dorm, despite the school sending several notices that she would be charged $150 a day if she stayed.

Palmer was issued a 30-day eviction notice last September but she refused to leave, prompting the school to go to court.

Palmer, a former geography major, says she plans to stay and fight the case.
