The C+ did not cost you $1.3M, your study habits and lack of effort are what lost you a potential $1.3M. Stop blaming others for your own shortcomings, Ms. Thode.

Also - get a better name.

The judge is an idiot for allowing this suit to proceed. If you don't do the work you don't get the grade! She sounds like an obnoxious jerkwad!

Shes an A student that got this grade because she didnt participate in class??? If she had outbursts in class isnt that a form of participation??? It sounds to me like she spoke out on her views and the teacher with different views was none to happy about it. Considering this is the only class where this issue occured it makes you wonder whos cheating who and whos being true...I dont even care anymore.

While everyone has a right to express their views I suspect this woman was obnoxious about it. Some activists can be disruptive which is NOT freedom of expression. I would like to hear what her classmates have to say.
