NYC Lawyer Marc Dreier's Son Sues For Defamation

NEW YORK (AP) ¿ The son of disgraced Manhattan lawyer Marc Dreier is suing a former college roommate for $1 million.

Nineteen-year-old Spencer Dreier says Ben Clorite of Madison, Conn., attacked him three times after they became roommates in September at Union College in Schenectady (skeh-NEK'-tuh-dee), N.Y.

He says he dropped out in his freshman year because Clorite assaulted, verbally abused and defamed him.

Dreier says the abuse escalated after his father's arrest in December. Marc Dreier has admitted defrauding hedge funds out of more than $400 million.

The lawsuit says Clorite wrote in an Internet posting that the younger Dreier had committed illegal acts.

A call to Clorite's room at Union went unanswered, and a call to his home was not returned.
