After cursing at a professor during a Spanish final, former Columbia-Juilliard student Oren Ungerleider was involuntarily committed to St. Luke's Hospital and kept there against his will for 30 days, according to a lawsuit he filed against the University this month.
On Jan. 17, Ungerleider filed suit in the southern district of New York federal court, claiming that Columbia and Continuum Health Partners--the organization that owns St. Luke's--falsely arrested and imprisoned him. The complaint also says that Continuum Health and four doctors involuntarily medicated him over the course of his hospitalization, which occurred in December 2010.
