Palm Beach County Woman Sues Pearson Education Over “Inappropriate” Remote Proctor.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Palm Beach County woman claims that Pearson Education forced her to bring her computer into a bathroom — then leave the camera and microphone on while she relieved herself.
Tara Duncan says the remote exam took place on December 11th, 2020. The unnamed proctor, identified as “John Doe” in the just filed lawsuit, allegedly told Duncan that she was required to leave her camera and microphone on while she “urgently” relieved herself during a final exam being conducted remotely.
From the lawsuit: “During the examination on December 11, 2020, the proctor, John Doe, intentionally directed Ms. Duncan to urinate in front of him or otherwise fail her exam. Both John Doe and Pearson would know this clearly outrageous conduct to cause the intense emotional distress Ms. Duncan has since suffered because of these actions.”
Also from the suit: “The conduct of the proctor, John Doe, in telling Ms. Duncan she was required to bring her laptop to the bathroom while she urinated was outrageous, as to go beyond all bounds of decency and regarded as odious and utterly intolerable in a civilized community.”
Duncan’s lawsuit against Pearson Education was filed by her attorney, Jordan Sacks, of Katranis, Wald and Garner in Fort Lauderdale. Read the complete filing, below.
Pearson Education did not file an immediate response with the Palm Beach County Clerk of Courts. Duncan seeks in excess of $30,000, the statutory minimum. Read the complete lawsuit, below.PEARSON
