A couple filed a federal lawsuit against an affluent all-girls school after their daughter had been bullied for months.
A group of girls at the exclusive Miss Porter's School allegedly bullied Tatum Bass until two physicians had to advise her to take a break from the school. The girl's harassers then put a "For Rent" sign on her bed and the school threatened to expel her.
Bass said in the suit that she was taunted and insulted publicly because she had attention-deficit disorder. She added that she had been bullied at a school dance, on campus, in text messages and on Facebook.
"(Her) emotional stress and anxiety became overwhelming," the suit said.
The lawsuit asks for unspecified damages and to be reinstated in good standing so that Bass can graduate.
Miss Porter's enrolls about 330 students from all over the world. The school's annual tuition tops off at $43,000 a year and to be accepted is considered a guaranteed ticket to an Ivy League school upon graduation.
