A spokeswoman for Gwinnett County Schools said it hadn’t received the lawsuit and wasn’t able to comment on it.
Once back at school, Doe says she was the victim of bullying and harassment. She also claims the school took no “meaningful” action to stop the torrent of hostility toward her. Subsequently, the Doe family removed her from the school and enrolled her in online classes.
Based on the school district’s sanction against Doe, her driver’s license was suspended until February 2016, the suit says.
The lawsuit seeks compensation for:
- Physical and psychological pain, suffering and impairment;
- Medical bills and expenses for counseling and other psychological care;
- A marred educational and disciplinary record and impaired education capacity and future earning capacity;
- Attorney's fees and costs.
