UBC student sues university for slashing attack

July 13, 2018

An international UBC student who was slashed in her dorm room by a fellow student experiencing a psychotic episode is suing the university, CBC reports. In a notice of civil claim, the student states that the attack has left her with “anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder.” “UBC knew or should have been aware of the risk of forced entry into rooms and assaults and/or persons entering student residence rooms,” the lawsuit reads. According to UBC, Hare’s attacker was found criminally not responsible by reason of mental disorder in 2017. None of the allegations in the civil claim have been proven in court. CBC
