Jan. 12, 2021 – The psychiatrist, Dr. Naomi Jones, reportedly said she was unable to determine whether Williams was fit for duty, according to the document.

School officials determined that Williams would need to complete a specific treatment program with Jones – which the lawsuit alleges was contrary to treatment she was already receiving from her own doctors.

Jones’ treatment plan ‘insisted that Dr. Williams sign a contract stating that she would be given monthly injections of Vivitrol for one year,’ according to the document.

Williams’ doctors, however, did not believe that the injections would be necessary and ‘all opposed the Vivitrol injections for her treatment.’

Vivitrol, also known as naltrexone, is a an injection used to treat dependency on alcohol and opioids. 

The principal was later taken off administrative leave and put on medical leave, before being notified just days later on April 8, 2019 that her contract would not be renewed.

‘Dr. Williams’ emotional distress includes but is not limited to severe depression and anxiety, significant weight loss, upset stomach, misery and hopelessness,’ according to the lawsuit.
