The mother of a Booker T. Washington girls basketball player is seeking more than $75,000 in damages from Tulsa Public Schools, Twitter and others after a picture of her daughter in her underwear was circulated online following a basketball game last year.

DeAnn Cooks filed suit against Tulsa Public Schools and Twitter as well as two students and their parents on Dec. 28, Tulsa County District Court filings show.

The petition asserts Cooks’ daughter, 16, was physically restrained and photographed by two of her teammates after a basketball game in Sand Springs on Nov. 23, 2011. The picture was posted on Twitter and circulated amongst her peers for several weeks, which the suit alleges resulted in bullying, including physical attacks, according to the documents.
