According to Courthouse News Service, the parents of a graduated high school student have filed a suit against Rockwood School District (RSD), a guidance counselor and the principal alleging defamation, negligence, and intentional infliction of emotional distress, after their daughter’s college scholarship was rescinded because of an allegedly false and defamatory recommendation letter sent by her high school guidance department.
