Woman sues ex after failing class
A 22-year-old B.C. woman is suing her ex-boyfriend to pay tuition for a class she says she failed due to distress over the breakup.
Roopam Plawn, a marketing student at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, says in her notice of claim that she is seeking $500 for the class, $600 for anxiety, depression, insomnia and loss of working time and performance and $250 for "severe distress."
She also wants Jasmeet Ahluwalia (AHLOO'-wall-ia) to pay court costs.
Plawn says in the court document that she met the international student in September 2013, they broke up in early 2014, got back together again and ended the relationship for good in May.
Plawn also says she lent Ahluwalia $3,500 and she wants the money back, with interest.
None of the allegations have been proven in court, and Ahluwalia has 14 days to respond to the notice after he's been served. (Kamloops This Week)
