UNION, S.C. (WSPA) – Leigh Anne Arthur, the former teacher whose nude pictures were taken and sent out by a student, has filed a lawsuit against the Union County School District where she had worked since 2003.
Arthur is suing the district and interim Superintendent Dr. David Eubanks, claiming Breach of Contract, Breach of Implied Covenant of Good Faith and Fair Dealing, and Defamation.
The lawsuit seeks damages for “injury to reputation, mental suffering, and emotional distress” in addition to legal fees.
The lawsuit says Arthur was forced to resign or she would have had to go before the school board.
After the incident, the 16-year-old student that sent out the pictures was arrested and charged with Aggravated Voyeurism and Computer Crimes.
