California – Senior high school student Angela Mortstrom successfully sued her “hot US History teacher” for failing to notice her in class, ruining her self-esteem and her entire senior year.
Mortstrom, who is referred to by friends as “da Epitome of Exquisite”, a self-imposed title, complained that 25 year old first year teacher, Geoff Lovelace, wouldn’t even look at her during numerous lectures. “I mean, what’s his problem anyway?” blubbered Mortstrom following a court hearing. “I spent like thousands on cute outfits. I risked being sent home on several occasions flouting dress codes and that bozo made me a joke in this school – he humiliated me.”
Mortstrom who has a reputation for getting a date, “like that”, failed to spark any response from Lovelace, whose attorney, John Hernandez, said, “Was acting professionally. My client, Mr. Lovelace, feels like victim in all of this. We plan on appealing, but with Mortstrom’s 14,000 facebook friends testifying against him and her mother an active member of the Rosehunt school board, a glance or two in her direction might have paid off.”
Things began to spiral out of control when Mortstrom, who is a fringe member of the student council, pushed for bikini day, and other elicit theme based events which forced school counselors to intervene. When other students began talking about her behavior in class, Mortstrom broke down and retaliated violently. “I don’t need all this negative attention!” she screamed, scratching at security guards called in to help quell the ensuing melee along with law enforcement officers.
Mortstrom’s mother, Rebecca revealed more about her daughter’s character. “I guess you could say she has a big ego, sure, but that does not give this Lovelace guy the right to trample all over it. Teachers are responsible for the well being of their students, and it’s clear his negligence in supporting my daughter made her life a living hell. All it would have taken was a simple ‘you look nice today Angela’, but he had to play hard ball.”
Presiding judge, Amanda Hurt agreed. “Lovelace has destroyed Angela’s self-esteem in an irrevocable sense. Teachers provide an important balance between the under-indulged and even over-indulged child, as in this case. But Lovelace went too far I think in remaining professionally unflappable when a young woman was throwing herself at him on a daily basis. That kind of tactical ignoring is rarely seen in the classroom in the modern age and it’s detrimental to our young people who crave attention when they’re not ignoring their parents.”
Students at the school remain divided. Many support Lovelace, describing him as a good teacher before Angela Mortstrom and her friends moved themselves to the front of the class to comment on his jeans on one casual Friday. “She’s the epitome of evil,” claimed Seth Bromberg, “a real D-bag. Her and her friends stomp about this school like they own it – it sucks.”
Other students who wouldn’t be named for fear of being ostracized from social media sites generally agreed. “She’s the most popular girl in school,” said one girl, “you don’t cross her or she will [expletive] you up - we’ve seen it before.”
Mortstrom claims being at the school was terrifying following the revelations about her crush on Lovelace. She dropped out of Lovelace’s class and contended she had to reschedule to take “That old bitch, what’s her name? Heaphy? I barely passed, it was obvious victimization, she was jealous of my relationship with Geoff.”
No comment was made from school authorities on the case. Mortstrom has gone on to graduate from Rosehunt High School and an appeal hearing is set for September.
