Massachusetts Institute of Technology & Others.  The Court concluded that in certain limited circumstances, a college or university may have a duty to take reasonable measures to prevent the suicide of one of its students.  This case provides new insights from Massachusetts’ highest court on when such a duty arises and what reasonable measures must then be taken by colleges and universities. To read more about theNguyen case, read the full client alert from Jason McGraw and Allie Mitropoulos.
