Woman faces lawsuit from student, former pornographic bondage model

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A University of Arizona professor faces a $1 million civil lawsuit filed by a former student.

The Chronicle of Higher Education reports Marcia Klotz, a lecturer in the English department, worked at Portland State University, had a student who had been a pornographic bondage model.

The student claimed Klotz was fixated on the girl's past and that caused that female student to have medical issues and to drop out of school.

The lawsuit claimed Klotz used her authority to coerce the student into providing inappropriate pictures, but Portland State University officials said she never complained before she filed the suit, and they denied any responsibility.

Klotz left the university last year to work at the UA, and the student dropped out of school in Spring 2013.

Officials at the University of Arizona confirmed Klotz does still works there and her husband is the chairman of the English department, but she does not report to him.
