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 filed a lawsuit against 32-year-old Lisa Palmer, saying the woman owes more than $94,000 in unpaid residence hall fees since she dropped out in 2016.READ MORE: Caldor Fire Containment Sits At 76%; More Evacuations Downgraded
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 in September 2017. She refused to leave, prompting the school to file its lawsuit.READ MORE: Fourth Stimulus Check: Is Another Relief Payment Coming?
