I am a 32 years old college student in Florida, today I was having a deferential equation exam “advance math class” from 03:30 pm to 05:00 pm when I left the exam room I went to my care and I saw some of my friends in the parking, while I was talking with my friends in front of my car a woman came to me and asked me if I am one of the student who was taking the deferential equation exam, I answered her and I told her yes I just finished the test , suddenly she started shouting at me and asking me to give her my phone as she want to see the phone photos, I refused to give away my phone, she told me she is the math department head and she have the authority to take my mobile “ in the middle of the street” as she received an information from one student telling her that there are some student were taking a picture of the test ”cheating “.
I replied to her that she don’t have such authority and this is my privacy, even though she insisted to take my phone, when I resist she said she is going to call the campus security to take my phone by force, but even though I didn’t agree as and I said if you want, please call the police and if the police got all the necessary approvals I will give it to them, but I will not give it to you, after that I left without letting her taking my phone.
This act from the head of the math department was really discriminating, as everyone who was in the parking thought that I am a cheater or I have cheated in the exam, and I got embarrassed in front of everyone who was there.
I am an Arabic student and I am in the XXXXX XXXXXst because of my high GPA, I have never cheated or even received car ticket.
My question is do I have a valid case or a legal case against the math department head and the university?
Appreciate your understanding and promote follow up.
Thanks and Regards
