Student Sues Law Professor over Assault

A UVa law student is suing her professor, alleging that he assaulted her in class. Professor Kenneth Abraham was demonstrating simple assault to the class, and “tapped” Marta Sanchez on the shoulder. Sanchez now seeks $35,000 in damages from Abraham, alleging that the tap brought long-surpressed traumatic memories to the surface. “To expect I wouldn’t be bothered by this,” said Sanchez, “is to expect Holyfield not to be bothered by Tyson biting his ear.” Peter Savodnik has the story in today’s Progress.
