Loudoun School for Advanced Studies

Attorney Elizabeth J. Lancaster didn’t need to argue that a $4 million lawsuit she wrote accusing a private school and its former principal of causing an ex-student to attempt suicide should continue.

Before Lancaster could rebut attorney D. Stephenson Schwinn’s dismissal motion on behalf of Loudoun School for Advanced Studies and Sylvia Israel, former head of school, Judge James E. Plowman denied the motion in Loudoun Circuit Court on Oct. 7. The lawsuit, which contains claims including intentional infliction of emotional distress, false imprisonment and negligence, was filed in July.
