The university’s lawyer seems to be stretching a bit here.

University lawyer suggests student faked injuries after dorm ceiling collapsed on her head

She’s too smart to be hurt.

Columbia University is trying to argue that a former student’s post-graduate success is proof that she wasn’t badly injured when a dorm-room ceiling collapsed on her head, The Post has learned.

Veronica Couzo, 26, who filed a personal-injury lawsuit, graduated magna cum laude from Notre Dame Law School this year.

During a deposition with Couzo’s mother, who was moving her daughter into the West 111th Street dorm when chunks of concrete, plaster and tiles crashed down on her head, Columbia lawyer Eric Strober suggested the young woman was faking injuries given her achievements.

“Columbia should have a shame hat on for this,” said miffed mom Lidia Couzo.

The transcript of Lidia’s recent deposition has not been released, but Veronica said Strober used the same line of questioning in her 2012 testimony.

After grilling the political-science major about her herniated disk, how the pain prevented her from sleeping well, and her need to take muscle relaxants, Strober asked Veronica if the injuries have affected her schoolwork.
