A Pennsylvania educator named in a webcam spying lawsuit says she never monitored students through webcams or authorized anyone else to do so.

Harriton High School vice principal Lynn Matsko responded to last week's lawsuit through a statement Wednesday. She did not take questions.

She did not address a lawsuit's accusation that she talked to a student about "improper behavior" at home, citing images from his school-issued laptop's camera.

The student, Blake Robbins, says that the Lower Merion School District photographed him in his bedroom.

District officials have said they remotely activated webcams to locate 42 missing laptops without notifying students. Robbins' lawyers asked again Wednesday for all the photographs and screenshots the district obtained.
