The 14-year-old girl, who attended the Patrick Henry High School in San Diego, asked the teacher to use the toilet, but she was told that she cannot leave the classroom.

The teacher told the court that the girl’s request has been denied because it was against the school’s rules. The girl used a bucket to urinate in front of her classmates.

Since the incident, the girl has been bullied. She felt humiliated and began suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. The girl told the court that her life has been affected due to this incident.

She filed a lawsuit against the San Diego Unified School District, and she was awarded $1.25 million.
