Jennifer Weiler, 19, of Green Mountain College in Poultney, Vermont has filed a lawsuit contesting the use of co-ed bathrooms at the school. The lawsuit names the Department of Public Safety and notes such things as flimsy curtains as shower doors and men using toilets without closing the door.
Co-ed bathrooms are common in Europe and other countries. In this case, the college appears to have yielded to Weiler in designating the bathroom on her floor for females, but she says the men still use the bathroom.
What is interesting about this suit is that this is a private school and the agency is being sued for a failure to enforce the code.
The college used to be all-female but switched to co-ed years ago.
The lawsuit demands enforcement of the International Building Code and International Plumbing Code, which applies in Vermont and requires separate restroom facilities.
