A judge says jurors in the Rutgers University webcam trial can't hear about an email passage in which the alleged victim referred to his roommate's behavior as "wildly inappropriate."

The judge did say jurors could hear about a part of the email in which Tyler Clementi said he believed his privacy had been violated.

It said that Clementi was "extremely uncomfortable sharing a room with someone who would act in this manner."

A resident assistant in their dorm testified about the email Wednesday.

Twenty-year-old Dharun Ravi is being tried on charges including invasion of privacy. Authorities say he used a webcam to spy on his roommate kissing another man.

The roommate, Tyler Clementi, killed himself days later. Ravi is not charged with the death.

A Rutgers University student says he helped a young man accused of spying on his roommate adjust a webcam to get a better view.

Lokesh Ohja told jurors Wednesday that Dharun Ravi moved the camera to improve the view of his roommate's bed.

Ohja says Ravi made the adjustment one night when roommate Tyler Clementi asked to have the dorm room privately.

Clementi committed suicide on Sept. 22, 2010. That's the day after the incident Ohja described. Authorities say Ravi's attempt to spy on his roommate that day was thwarted when his computer was unplugged.

Ravi faces charges including invasion of privacy and bias intimidation. He is not charged in Clementi's death.
