CASE ENTRY

Sissom v. University of Texas High School

Uncounseled plaintiff sues the University of Texas for gaslighting him—that is, per dictionary.com, manipulating him by psychological means into questioning his own sanity. Skipping over whether gaslighting is indeed a tort, the Fifth Circuit affirms dismissal. The state hasn’t waived sovereign immunity.
