UW-Whitewater professor sues student over postings
WHITEWATER, Wis. (AP) -- A University of Wisconsin-Whitewater professor has filed a lawsuit accusing her former graduate student of posting defamatory comments about her online. A Janesville Gazette report (http://bit.ly/1hcjNmn ) on Thursday says Anthony Llewellyn (loo-EL'-en) took a class last year from communications professor Sally Vogl-Bauer. The lawsuit says Llewellyn posted videos and comments accusing the teacher of criticizing his academic abilities, grading him unfairly and causing him to fail out of school. Tim Edwards is Vogl-Bauer's attorney. He says it's fine for students to express opinions, but they cross the line when they make false statements with the intent of damaging a teacher's reputation. Llewellyn says his goal was to inform the public about how the professor treated him, not to defame her. The lawsuit seeks punitive damages and attorney and trial fees. ------ Information from: The Janesville Gazette, http://www.gazetteextra.com
