Annapolis High teacher seeks $250,000 in lawsuit against union

An Annapolis High School teacher is seeking $250,000 from the Teachers Association of Anne Arundel County for a series of causes, including defamation, infliction of emotional distress and breach of contract, according to a lawsuit filed in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Jan. 27.

In the suit, Annapolis High School science teacher Sharon Moesel says TAAAC and its leaders made false statements about her in two letters a censure letter sent to her in August of 2016 and a letter expelling her from the union sent in May of 2017.

The suit claims the statements were meant to ostracize Moesel from her colleagues, cause injury to Moesel and were part of an improper effort to remove Moesel from the union. The letters were sent to her Anne Arundel County Public Schools email address, making them part of the public record, the suit mentions.

The suit also says the union and its leaders engaged in conduct meant to silence Moesel from speaking publicly about issues of concern to her and her fellow teachers. It also alleges that TAAAC breached its contract with Moesel, who pays membership dues to be a part of the bargaining unit, when it canceled her membership. It also alleges interference in contractual business and civil conspiracy.
