Legal Question

Asked on: 10/31/13, 11:57 pm

Hi, I am a sophmore in a public college who suffers from discraphia, dyslexia, and ADD. I have letters of accommodation which allow for me to have a note taker or use a laptop and sit in the front of the class room to subdue my ADD. Recently one of my teachers got mad at me for typing and after calling me out in front of the whole class made me put away my laptop. After class I asked her to find a note taker for me since she does not like typing and she has still not found one for me. Under the American's With Disabilities Act my professors are required to apply to my disability requests. Basically what I want to know is can I sue them for their negligence?
