A lawsuit has been filed against Anne Arundel County’s school board for damages in excess of $75,000.
The suit was filed last year after an incident which happened at the student’s middle school in October 2017.
While in French class, the student got up to ask her teacher a question. Her hand was resting on the door jamp and she was looking out the window. The teacher then tried to get the attention of the class by slamming the door.
The three middle fingertips of the student’s hand were severed.
