The mother of a student who she claims was verbally abused and bullied by a George Washington University professor is suing the school, the GW Hatchet reports.

In a suit filed in D.C. Superior Court last month, the woman claims that an associate professor, Eric Saidel, "emotionally and verbally abused" her daughter while she participated in the School Without Walls Early College program in 2011.

The lawsuit names multiple parties, including Saidel, the university and its philosophy department and others. In it, the mother says that the teacher continuously lied to her daughter and repeatedly ridiculed her.
