BOZEMAN, Mont. -

A former Montana State University student has filed a lawsuit alleging the university failed to protect him from a roommate who stole his money and engaged in disturbing sexual conduct.
Evan Clark's lawsuit against the state alleges campus officials knew his roommate had been removed from other dorm rooms due to erratic behavior but ignored Clark's request to have him removed until Clark went to Bozeman police.
The lawsuit said Clark became so depressed that he quit going to class in the fall of 2015 and took an overdose of painkillers. He has no desire to return to college.
MSU spokesman Tracy Ellig told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle that the university has not been served with the lawsuit and typically doesn't comment on pending litigation.
The lawsuit, filed Monday, seeks unspecified monetary damages for Clark and his parents.
