Cornell and the City of Ithaca could face trial this summer for negligence in the death of a Cornell student who jumped from the Thurston Avenue Bridge in February 2010, a U.S. district judge ruled Tuesday.

Bradley Ginsburg ’13 jumped to his death from the bridge into the Fall Creek Gorge and was found dead on Feb. 17, 2010. His death was one in a string of student suicides that ultimately led to the installation of temporary chain-link fences, and later nets, on bridges around Cornell’s campus, as well as the increase of mental health programs on campus.
