(Newser) – After months of looking for work, fed up New Yorker Trina Thompson is suing her college for the $70,000 she spent on tuition. Monroe College's Office of Career Advancement hasn't done enough to help her find employment, the 27-year-old spring graduate claims in a suit filed in Bronx Supreme Court.

Monroe officials would like to read the riot act to Thompson. "The lawsuit is completely without merit," said a spokesman. "The college prides itself on excellent career-development support, and this case does not deserve further consideration."
