Legal Advice Ok, I know no one here is a lawyer (that I know of), but maybe someone out there can help me. I have a roommate I want kicked out of my house. He blasts loud music, has friends over all the time, and steals my food. On two separate occasions, when he has had friends over, and I haven't been home, someone has come into my room, and stolen some of my belongings. The first time, they stole all my Xbox games and DVDs, amounting to $400 worth of stuff. The second time (last night) they stole my XBox, plus my new shoes, my new clothes, the one DVD I've bought since the last theft, and my poker money, amounting to $425. Is there anyway I can kick out the roommate and get him to continue to pay rent? Also, can I sue him for the $825 from the lost items? Here's a section of Ohio Law I found, but I don't know how to interpret it: I don't know if that can apply to just a single tenant, or if that is intended for landlords to be able to sue all tenants when property gets stolen or destroyed. Can anyone help, or at least tell me where I can look for help? I've already e-mailed the Student Housing Legal Clinic at Ohio State and am currently awaiting a reply. I have a suspsicion that my roommate either told them where to look for my stuff or he was in on the theft itself, but I have no proof.
