An Emerson student who says school officials dismissed her story of being raped by a fellow Emerson student and an MIT student in October has filed a federal lawsuit against the college.

In the suit, the student, identified as Jane Doe, charges a classmate took her to an MIT frat party in October, 2012 - possibly after first plying her with a spiked drink - where he and an MIT student raped her. She alleges college officials refused to seriously investigate her claims, in fact, were openly hostile to her, and that dealing with the whole situation drove her to suicide attempts.
