(Newser) – A 14-year-old San Diego girl has filed a $25,000 lawsuit against a teacher she says ordered her to pee in a bucket within earshot of her classmates. The alleged incident occurred Feb. 22, when the student asked to be excused to use the bathroom. She says teacher Gonja Wolf instead took her to a small room and told her to pee in a bucket and then empty it into the sink.

The student says she had to go so badly that she complied. She believes Wolf gave these "humiliating instructions" loud enough for the class to hear in order to make an example of her—within days, the entire campus knew of the incident, which caused her "emotional distress," the lawsuit claims. The school has put the teacher on paid leave while it investigates the incident, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
