Mattress Platform: Student ‘stolen’ by a ‘fake’ student
A college student who is suing her former roommate after he was found dead was allegedly using an online learning platform, dayz cross-platform, to get a medical degree, a federal judge has ruled.
The lawsuit alleges that Stephanie M. Wooten was using the platform to study at the University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The plaintiff, who was living with Wootens in Pittsburgh, was a student at the university from May to August, according to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit alleges the college was negligent and negligent in its policies regarding students and other employees and did not investigate or take any action to stop the unauthorized use of the platform.
Wooten filed the lawsuit against the university on Friday in U.S. District Court in Pittsburgh.
She claims that Wootes roommate, who is not named in the lawsuit, allegedly stole her medical degree from her and the lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.
The complaint alleges that Woots roommate was also allegedly a member of the university’s community.
Woots alleged that the roommate used the platform in the name of another student, and that the university “did not investigate and did no follow-up” to Woot’s claim.
The suit claims that the University did not notify the plaintiff about the unauthorized access.
In an email, university spokesperson Michael J. McEwen said the lawsuit is “without merit and is being brought in an attempt to seek monetary damages from a student that has already been notified of her claim and that her claim is not supported by facts.”
“The University does not tolerate the unauthorized or unauthorized use or misuse of any of our educational resources or any other services by students,” McEwan said.
The university will not comment on pending litigation.
Woots was not identified in the complaint, but Woot said in a statement that the lawsuit was “false, malicious, and false allegations made by an anonymous, disgruntled former student” who used the account to gain access to her personal information.
