Smug Roommate Won't Pay Rent, Gets Defeated In Court

As far as nightmarish roommate cases go, this woman is in a league of her own. She refused to pay rent, drained her roommate's savings in the process, stole their food, broke their things, and all the while pawned off the unfortunate instances as being a result of "bad energy" in the place.

Fortunately, the roommate had a valuable connection in the legal department and was able to resolve the drama in court with welcomed smoothness and efficiency.
