Millions and millions of people were cruelly tormented in high school, but how many of them sued their alma maters over it? Tatum Bass, a student at the $43K/year Miss Porter's, is suing for unspecified damages because of bullying, which resulted in overwhelming "emotional stress and anxiety" and caused her to "uncharacteristically" cheat on an art history test, a crime which she herself confessed to school brass. "The lawsuit said the school and Windsor inflicted long-term damage on Bass' academic career by notifying at least one college about the suspension without giving her a chance to offer her side. The expulsion threat soon followed for her 'unexcused absences' when she tried to complete her studies off-campus, a violation of school rules not detailed in the lawsuit." [AP via MSNBC]
