The parents of a university student, who killed himself after his roommate used a webcam to film him kissing another man, have dropped plans to sue anyone involved in the case. Tyler Clementi jumped to his death from a bridge, aged just 18, after realising Dharun Ravi had secretly filmed his gay encounter in the room they shared at Rutgers University in New Jersey. Ravi was not charged with causing the suicide but he was convicted of 15 offences, including intimidation, invasion of privacy and witness tampering in March and spent 20 days in jail.
On September 19,Clementi's roommate, Dharun Ravi, used a webcam on his dorm-room computer and his hallmate Molly Wei's computer to view, without Clementi's knowledge, Clementi kissing another man. Clementi eventually found out, after Ravi posted about the webcam incident on Twitter. Two days later, Ravi urged friends and Twitter followers to watch via his webcam a second tryst between Clementi and his friend, though the viewing never occurred.
