Celiac Students Sue College Over Food Allergies and Win: A group of students in Cambridge, MA, recently won a major victory over Lesley University based on the food served in the institution’s dining halls. The students who sued suffer from celiac disease, an ailment that means one can’t process gluten (a protein composite found in foods processed from wheat and grains). In an agreement with the Department of Justice, Lesley must provide gluten- and allergen-free options in all dining halls, offer special meals for students with allergies, and pay $50,000 in damages to each student who filed a claim.
