Legal Question in Education Law in California
Can I sue my school for causing me to take a leave of absence for mental health problems? Was threatened with housing eviction and a mandatory leave of absence from Georgetown University for mental illness problems. Under this pressure, I signed papers for a voluntary leave of absence from the university, fearing a loss of tuition and the added complications of an involuntary vs. voluntary leave of absence regarding a return to school.

Quite possibly. As I recall Georgetown is private, so you may have more onerous contractual restrictions re "leaves of absence" than would be the case in public institutions.

Your question is not subject to California law. You need to repost your question for District of Columbia lawyers to answer.
