(KGTV) - A Bay Area woman has filed a $500 billion lawsuit over the college admissions scandal, accusing specific individuals linked to the alleged scam -- including actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin -- of denying others an opportunity to attend elite U.S. colleges.

The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in San Francisco by Jennifer Kay Toy, according to California Superior Court records.

Toy, who identified herself as a former teacher in the Oakland Unified School District, said in the suit that as an educator she “always taught my students that study and hard work was the best way to get into a good college. I always taught my students to be honest and forthright and that cheating was wrong.”

She continued, “I’m now aware of the massive cheating scandal wherein wealthy people conspired with people in positions of power and authority at colleges in order to allow their children to gain access to the very colleges that [her son Joshua] was rejected from. I’m not a wealthy person, but even if I were wealthy I would not have engaged in the heainous [sic] and dispicable [sic] actions of defendants. I’m now outraged and hurt because I feel that my son, my only child, was denied access to a college not because he failed to work and study hard enough but because wealthy individuals felt that it was OK to lie, cheat, steal and bribe their children’s way into a good college.”

The filing shows Toy is seeking damages “in the amount of no less than $500,000,000,000.”
