Former school leader sues Oprah Winfrey

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - October 6, 2008

/*Nomvuyo Mzamane*/'s lawsuit claims that Winfrey falsely suggested that Mzamane knew about the alleged abuse by an employee and tried to cover it up.

The suit, filed Friday, seeks more than $250,000 on five defamation and related counts from /*Oprah Winfrey*/ and her production company.

Mzamane formerly worked at a Quaker school in Philadelphia. She says she has returned to the city but cannot find work.

Winfrey's Harpo Productions has not yet responded to a call for comment.
