The case has received international publicity, including mention by both CNN and BBC News. Ms. Thompson seeks $70,000 for reimbursement of her tuition. A College spokesperson said, "this case does not deserve further consideration". As of early August 2009, the lawsuit filed in the New York Supreme Court, Bronx County, and had not yet been resolved.
