Nursing student Jennifer Burbella recently filed a lawsuit against Misericordia University after failing a required class for the second time. The lawsuit claims she suffered from severe anxiety, depression and poor concentration and was not given appropriate accommodations during her final exam.

Ottawa Senators' owner Eugene Melnyk pleads for new liver, raises ethical questions
Toronto Star
For weeks leading up to the Stanley Cup playoffs, the Ottawa Senators rallied on ice to overcome the largest regular-season point deficit in NHL history. But behind the scenes, the team was quietly rallying for much more than some wins. Unbeknownst to hockey fans, the club's 55-year-old owner Eugene Melnyk, who has one of the rarest blood types, was battling liver complications that landed him in hospital for three weeks and placed him in urgent need of a transplant. In a distressed attempt to save their loved one, the Melnyks worked with Toronto General Hospital to reach out to friends and "broader family" in search of a liver. They never found a match so on Thursday, the team decided to take matters into their own hands, releasing a plea for fans to come forward and donate their own livers.
